    My ducks stay in a coop thats part of the barn during the night, we have no more chickens, and lay their eggs in straw on the ground. But I was wondering what kind of nesting boxes you use for your ducks. Pictures would be great for me to see of your boxes.

    had to laugh because my runners seem to lay their eggs where ever they happen to be standing at the time.

    We had a duck that used to like to walk the row of nest boxes and stare at the chickens laying in them. They also slept in the bottom row of nest boxes, however, almost all eggs are laid wherever they are standing and then rolled together and buried. Our ducks REALLY love to bury the eggs.
