    I am so excited. Our Khakis finally started laying yesterday! They are 7 months old and we had given up on seeing eggs before spring. We had originally expected to see eggs at 20 weeks which was in September, then winter set in. Is it normal for a duck to start laying so late, especially in the winter?

    [​IMG] Congrats on the eggs! I have heard many cases of people's birds starting to lay during winter.
