Generally late winter, spring and into early sumer is the most common time.  But some ducks will lay and sit year round.  Domestic ducks can be little different to wild ducks who are much more seasonal- especially if they are migratory birds.

I have Khakis and Pekins. Would the breeding season be the same as you mentioned above?
