    When should I expect my two Peking ducks to start laying eggs? They are April babies so that makes them 9 months old. I think they are both female, they don't have drake feathers.

    Probably soon, while i am not familiar with Pekin, my Muscovy usually resume come Feb(they ceased late Oct)... not unusual for ducks to take a winter break.

    I have one duck from March, she started laying later fall but didn't get to many eggs before the heavy, darker days of winter set in and she ceased.
