    My call ducks have been regularly laying eggs this past month i get 2-3 a day. I think it may be because they have just reached sexual maturity is why they started to lay so late. I am not sure how old they are, I got them at the Ohio National, so this is just a hypothesis. I was wondering since they are laying now are they not going to lay in the spring and is anyone else's laying now or had this happen to them.
    I do have 12 in the incubator to see if they will hatch!!

    I dont have much experience with calls. I only have one drake and I'm very interested in expanding my flock as soon as possible. I have learned that they lay primarily in spring and summer. I have seen a few people on here whos are laying now though. My next question is, have you seen them mating and if so are you interested in selling or trading some eggs?

    Mixed colors or they are mixed with another breed of duck? If so what kind?

    Mine only lay through about March-May(because we let them set), but they would probably go to june.
