I have had two ducks (Welsh Harlequin crosses) for two weeks now. I bought them off a breeder who told me they are a year old, females and have been busy laying nice big eggs. However I haven't received an egg from either of them yet. They are confined to a decent sized pen for now, have a nice little house with straw, a paddling pool, a couple of other randomly placed nesting boxes and they're on good quality layer pellets, wheat and vege/fruit scraps. While they are incredibly shy ducks, they seem happy. Is it normal that they haven't laid in the two weeks they have been living with me? Could it possibly be too hot right now? (I'm in NZ - middle of summer). Thanks!
