My ducks (well half of them anyway) began laying in September. I have 11 females ages are 23 and 26 weeks. 26 weekers are the Pekins and a black runner. The rest are all 23 week olds. We are getting 4-5 eggs a day. Every now and then we have a 3 egg day. But very consistently 4 or 5 for the most part. We have never had a 6 egg day. We let them out at 10am because we were only getting 2-3 for a long time and suspected they might be laying on the pond. We got our first egg Sept 2. They are now laying their eggs by 8am generally. We no longer get any more eggs after 830am. I would like to let them out earlier but since only half are laying- it's hard to know if they are donating to the pond or not. lol They are on Mazuri maintenance and I mix in oyster shell (they won't eat it otherwise when I set it out). The egg size is also pretty small. I can easily fit the eggs in my recycled chicken egg cartons. Half the time they even wiggle. We have gotten 2 eggs that were about 92 grams in size and they were double yolkers. The average size is about 50-55 grams for an egg. Is this pretty normal? Am I doing something wrong that the eggs are generally still smaller than chicken eggs? By this point shouldn't I be getting more than 4 or 5 eggs a day from 11 layers? Or is it possible they are all laying but each duck lays every other day? Thanks!
