I keep reading 3 years as the cut off. Any of that keep ducks for egg laying- can you share what your experiences are with egg laying? Did yours lay after 3 years? Did quantity drop off drastically after the 3rd year? They do not lay all 12 months each year- they stop laying eggs when molting correct? How long does molting generally last? Do they start laying again right away or after a time? Is there a general time during the year when ducks molt or is it individual to the duck?
And for any of you with laying experience- of the ducks you have raised- which were the best layers? I have been surprised to read sometimes that ducks that would normally not lay well, can lay nearly daily...like a Pekin.
