    Hi! I'm new to this forum and have a question regarding eggs. I've got a single mallard (6 months old) who spends her time both indoors & in the backyard. When I let her out of her duckhouse this AM I found her first egg! As I was moving the brohme grass out of the way I found 3 more. Is it common that a duck would lay 4 in a night? Or did I miss the others the past few days? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks! [​IMG]

    Congrats on your duck eggs! I'd say she's been laying for a few days...a duck will usually lay no more than one a day.

    Thanks! That's kind of what I thought. I'll keep an eye on it. I've never had a pet duck before so it's all a learning curve... She's great though & we'll definitely be getting more! [​IMG]
