I have 8 Pekins. Two Drakes and 6 hens. I bought them in March 2014 and they started laying around August 2014. I was getting between 2-3 eggs per day up until recently. They slacked off to about 3-4 per week for a few weeks and in the past 2 weeks I've seen no eggs. I have had issues with crows eating them but apparently they can't carry them off so just eat them in place. I'm not seeing any shells around the pond. They always lay just after sunrise so I've been sitting out there waiting to see if another varmint is taking them and haven't seen any other critters. Question is.........do ducks have a very short laying life? No feed changes or other trauma has happened. Very strange! Any ideas?
