http://[email protected]I have 5 ducks, Mallards, 3 Male and 2 females. I also have 5 RoadIsland Reds. I had to separate the ducks from the chickens due to the ducks were being aggressive to the chickens. My female ducks are laying eggs out in the open and not in their housing. And this is Feb. 2015. And I live in Indiana. My question is, why are the ducks laying out in the cold run area and not in their house. There is plenty off straw and leafs in their housing. So is this normal? Why aren't the ducks setting on their eggs?
