    No worries, All ducks have toe nails. Muscovies seem to have the biggest.

    Maybe it is not the right season for them. Some ducks dont lay all year round. Only during mating season.

    And changes like from their old home to a new home can throw their laying out of cycle for a while even with breeds that are known for their egg laying.
