    My ducks are 5 months now and since last Sat. I have gotten an egg a day faithfully so I knew at least one of my girls was laying & laying in the coop like a good girl ( they free range all day). Well, today when I dumped the kiddie pool out to clean it there was an egg in there. So I am guessing I now have 2 girls laying. So, my question is - Was this a mishap? Will she go to the coop & lay next time or does anyone have girls that always lay eggs in the water?

    For my eleven runners and buffs, having the runners two and a half years and the buffs about nine months, I have had a total of perhaps five or six eggs laid in water. Four of those within the last two weeks.
