    Hi everyone!
    I purchased a pair of call ducks last fall at the fair. I was told that they were hatched early that spring, meaning they should be around a year old now. They include 2 hens and a drake. I have yet to get a single egg out of either of them. Anyone know why this might be??? Thanks!!

    I have 2 call girls that will be 1 yr old in a week... one started laying 2 weeks ago and the other hasnt started yet..its still early.. I was told call ducks can be more immature ??!!! Call ducks only lay around 60-75 days out of the year. - lots of ducks have Not started laying yet.. Im sure they will start soon.
