Buffs are not laying

I have 4 ducks who were born last August, so just under a year old. 1 White Layer, 1 Welsh, 2 Buffs. They all started laying in January when they were about 5 months old, and I consistently got 4 eggs (every once in a while 5) from them all winter. About 4-6 weeks ago, I started getting only 2 eggs/day. Through careful observation, I have found that my Buffs are the ones not laying. The White Layer and Welsh either lay in the coop early in the morning or go off and lay in their "secret" spot, but NOTHING from the Buffs. What gives? And what can I do about it? They are fed Scratch and Peck Layer Feed in the AM and PM, and hunt for bugs all day long.

Mine are not on a rhythm that I can see, it takes up to two months. Giving good nutrition including just a liittle extra protein treat seems good. I give a little dry cat kibble.
