    HI Guys! I have a pair of mallard ducks which are free ranging ? i am giving them wheat corn and all the table scrap they have plenty of water throughout the day but I dont have any kind of pond like thing for them to bath. they seems to be very healthy active but for the last like 6 to 7 months my duck hasn't laid a single egg ? i have tried calcium suppliments also but it didnt made any difference ?

    Tell me what to do ..?

    Perhaps you should try feeding layers pellets to them?

    Not as far as I know, you could try searching organic layers pellets if there is such a thing [​IMG]

    I'd say Mallards prefer to mate in water and maybe she isn't laying because they don't have that natural mating thing called water, I have a couple kiddie pools for my ducks and it seems once mating starts eggs usually come anywhere from 2-4weeks later. also laying pellets may help I don't use them though only an all flock feed and offer oyster shell on the side.
