    Hi All,
    I have two questions for everybody. The first is at what age do ducks start laying eggs? I have to 11 to 12 week old pretty sure they're female duckies, no curly tail feathers. We have 1 Pekin and 1 Malard. My second question is, do ducks have an Egg song like chickens do?

    Thanks in advance for any replies, first time duck Grandma.

    I'm not sure about other kids of ducks, but Muscovy have something Like an egg song. But it's the egg Poop. After laying an egg, they come out and spray a vile green mess, shot gun style. Does that count?
