Hi everyone! I've been looking all over trying to find some idea of how a duck's egg laying frequency changes as they age, and I'm just not having a whole lot of luck. I can find information on when they begin to lay, and how many eggs per year you can expect at their peak, but nothing when it comes to their later years. Commercial egg producers obviously don't keep their hens more than a couple years, and small-scale backyard duck keepers might not need to keep close records on their flock. Soooo my question is: Anyone out there have an idea of how many eggs your ducks give you per year past their first couple? At this point I'll take any data you might have - any breed, mixed breed flocks, small flocks, estimates based on memory, links, ANYTHING! Most of the numbers I see are obtained by taking a daily percent (since ducks are kind of impossible to get laying in the same spots). So if you get 80 eggs a day from 100 ducks, you're at 80% production. Once I get my ducklings in and they are old enough to lay, I want to chart eggs so I can maybe contribute some information to the collective, haha. Chicken owners have a lot more resources for this kind of stuff, it seems *sigh* Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to offer!
