I have but 90 percent block out shade cloth around coop. Will this stop them from laying
We can hope....
Most birds need light to lay.. I am unsure if dux do or not...do you want them to lay?
May I ask why you do not want them to lay eggs ?
I read this as OP is using the shade cloth anyway and hopes this DOESNT stop the ducks laying.
Anyway I don't know about ducks but chickens only need light to lay, not sunlight. Artificial light is fine (as they use in large scale egg farming with caged birds) , although they might need extra vitamin D in their diet.
Maybe I misunderstood op. Our ducks get an extra hour or two of light from motion detector solar powered lights.
It not dark it just keeps sun off. I like duck eggs . Good for cakes.
They need sunlight otherwise they won't be able to photosynthesize and will die.
For @duluthralphie sunlight is what makes them multiply. So bring on the sunlight!!
DUX contain chloroform and can photosynthesize? I knew it they are mutants and must be destroyed!
See above response!!!
