I've had my ducks for not even a year, so I need a wee bit more info.. I've looked on Google but I haven't had much help with the information. Spring is coming up in a few months and I'm looking forward to eggs and ducklings. I have 13 ducks, 7 rouens, 4 indian runners, and two crested pekins(?). I'm not sure if they're called crested pekins though, they're the white kind of crested duck. They have a medium sized pond that fits all of them and with extra swimming room. It's about a foot and a half deep. There is one rouen drake and one crested drake. I guess it's been breeding season since I see them both mating with the hens alot. The hens have plenty of places to lay their eggs. Will the hens act differently when they start laying? Also will the other ducks break the eggs or eat them? I can't wait for the runners to start laying, I thought they would have already but I guess I have to wait until spring huh. I've been told they aren't just seasonal layers which is why I can't wait until they start. Yummy duck eggs all year! Thank you for any input.
