    I recued 2 ducks from a women's bath tub. She said she had them for 9 weeks and wasn't allowed ducks in her housing area. I have a pond and at that time two 4 year old pekin ducks.[​IMG] Since then I have raised these 3 additional pekin ducks. My question is can anyone identify these 2 ducks. I think they might be Campbell Khaki but I am not sure. Also I believe one of them is laying eggs. Today she did not lay an egg should I be concerned.
    Also at what age will my pekin start laying? I am new to this egg thing as my two 4 year old pekin's were males. Thanks for your help!

    They look like khaki campbells. No need to be concerned about them taking a day off, they don't lay every day so that it normal. Glad you took them in and gave them a good home!

    How do you know they are both girls? One has a very loud quack and the other is very quiet.

    One is laying eggs right? If they're both laying age it should be obvious what sex they are by now and they both look like girls. Do you know how many weeks they are?

    KC drakes have lighter colored bodies and green heads.
