    I know calls lay eggs or we wouldnt have any, but how many on average to they lay a year? When do they start and stop laying usually? [​IMG]

    Some will lay 4 or 5 a week, some will lay 1 or 2 a week. They will begin laying in Feb. Mine stop laying about the middle of Nov. I do not use artificial lighting. Just in case..........
    some will set on their own eggs and some will not. They are hard to hatch in an incubator.
    The better quality the duck.....the harder it seems to be to hatch. They are very friendly if you handle them often and a lot of fun to watch when you offer them a kids pool to swim in!
