It depends on the duck, but they should start laying at around 20 weeks, give or take. My two that are laying are mallards, and they lay almost every day. One is like clockwork, the other skips a day every 4-5 days. Looking forward to my other four starting to lay, but we have a while to go. They're 9 weeks this Sunday.
If they mature too close to winter, they may not start laying until spring, but again, it depends on the duck.
