I live in central VA, and we recently had about 3 weeks straight of rain. This meant a whole lot of cloud coverage, and consequently loss of daylight. As it turns out, this weather event has triggered fall molting (loss of flight feathers) in at least half the flock.
Because we are about to go into summer, will the ducks stop laying as long as they would have if it was winter?
I am so upset, this is our first year as a business and our customers aren't too thrilled. Artificial light didn't do the trick :(
I just want to know when we can expect them (or hope for them) to start laying again.
