    How old is she?
     
  3. She'll lay , , , she's just on her own schedule and it might not match up exactly to the one in the books / online. Just keep an eye out for eggs in weird places . . . our ducks lay like clockwork early in the morning, maybe even before 6 a.m. Our first egg we found in the pond . . .

    Ducks get upset by changes. You've moved her to a new location, so she is upset. They don't lay when they are upset.

    Give her time to settle in. If she is old enough to lay eggs, she will start soon.
