I have 10 Australian Spotted ducks that are about 2 mos. old. I have some VERY basic egg laying questions: 1. Am I correct they should be laying eggs at about 4 mos. give or take? 2. Do the layers need different food from the drakes? 3. In order to eat the eggs, they need to be collected daily? 4. I am not ready to start the hatching process, so any eggs not gathered daily should be discarded? 5. Do I set up my nests early and put a artificial egg in it and just wait for them to start laying? Thanks for your help! Great information here.
