    Hey everybody! So I have six ducks that are 2.5 months old. And we have 3 ducks and 3 drakes. And I was curious at about what age would the girls start laying? And at about what age would the drakes start to breed the girls? Any help would be great thank you!

    I've heard the males will start to breed everything within their sight at about 4 months old. Girls usually start laying at 6 months?

    No problem. :) My babies are just over 2 months and are already so big! I can't wait for them to be mature. [​IMG]
