    My 19 week old ducks aren't laying yet. I have heard that they lay anywhere from 14 to 17 weeks. Why haven't they layed an egg yet?!?!

    They lay closer to 20 weeks from what I have read. We are eagerly waiting for ours too. 18 weeks old now.

    You might have to wait a few more weeks. However, a lot of ducks are seasonal layers, so if it's already started to have less daylight in your area, you may not have many eggs until next spring unless you supplement their lighting.
