    Well, I asked about Cocoa having a saggy belly about a week ago now and what it ment. Everyone told me that it ment she was eggnant which after asking what that ment [​IMG] found out that she was making an egg. So now I am wondering how long it will take until she lays that egg. [​IMG] Everyday I am out there looking at her belly and it is the same size and I check every corner of the yard that I have ever seen her waddle to. No egg yet. Is there a time frame for when they start to lay? Also anyone have any idea what color of egg I should be looking for.

    My ducks got like that right before winter. It could mean she's getting ready to lay, but it could also mean that she's just storing fat, much like the puches that geese get.
