    Our duck has not layed an egg in 4 days. She is not molting. She looks happy and is eating well. should I be concerned?

    If she has been laying for an extended period of time, she may just be taking a normal break in her egg laying cycle. If she is apparently normal in all other aspects, I would not be concerned.

    We have only had her a 2 months. dont know much about her. I will keep an eye on her and will not get concerned unless her behavior changes. How long do these breaks normally last?
