    Hi, I have 4 magpie ducks, 2 adults and 2 ducklings. One of the adults is a girl. She has been laying for a month or so now and now she all of a sudden stopped laying eggs. Does she have a hidden nest? Please help, we want to get yummy duck eggs again[​IMG]! Thanks in Advance![​IMG]

    yes she might have a hidden nest if she free ranges, or she could have stopped laying if a predator threatened them in the night and it scared her. if that is the case your yummy duck eggs wont show fora couple days [​IMG]hope this helps!
