Runner( hen ) ducks when do they stop laying?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have four runner hens and its been almost a year since they last laid? Their not molting , getting proper feed also. Is there a reason why they stop laying? they are two years old could that be it?  We clean out their coop almost all the time but ya gotta love ducks always messy lol........

iamcuriositycat had a problem with ducks not laying and discovered a contaminant in their water.

 

So you  might want to look into something in their environment, or consider whether something could be stealing eggs.

Please consider adopting rescued ducks.

People often ask if they should "put down" a bird that has suffered major injuries.  In my experience, birds appreciate the opportunity to recover.  Ducks have an amazing ability to heal, even from injuries that appear to be catastrophic.
