    I have six girls and one is laying. My runner stopped a week or two ago, she's been molting. Do ducks stop laying while molting? Now only one of my Swedish girls are laying.

    Ah, that would explain why my rescue ducks haven't laid me a thing. I assumed it was because they weren't comfortable enough in their surroundings, but I picked them up while they were moulting. I live in AZ and we still have long days and warm temps until december. Think I'll get any eggs this year from my adult hens or my juveniles turning 12 weeks before next spring?
