In the Brooder
- Aug 4, 2015
Our two ducks were laying everyday until it got cold. I thought they layed right through the cold. Could they be hiding their eggs? I have looked everywhere and have not found any outside of their cubby.
They are pure white with orange beaks and feet. They are a year old and this is the first experience with ducks. The have an enclosed shelter with straw and they can come and go as they please. They used to bury them in their nest of straw, then stopped when I found them. That's when they quit laying, or maybe when the snow melts we might find a pile of eggs somewhere then!What kind are they? My Khakis layed through the winter and I thought had stopped a couple weeks ago. Turns out they were crossing their little legs and waiting to lay until they were let out. They hid their eggs under low bushes, buried in the leaves. After days of having egg hunts every morning, I put dummy eggs in the nest boxes. It worked for two of my girls. The third is still making me hunt! They could be hiding them on you.
