    Hi,

    I have 2 pet ducks and im wanting to know what breeds they are?

    (I saved them from being killed and I am unsure of their age)

    I do know 1 of them is male and 1 is female. I have had them for quite a while now and the female has never laid an egg.

    Why would she not lay? [​IMG]

    Thanks

    Sorry I don't know anything about ducks - maybe she is too young or too old to lay. If you put "duck thread," in the searchbox if will take you there . The duck folks would have much better answers for you . Welcome to Backyard chickens.
