    Ducks will start to lay eggs at around 20-24 weeks of age. There is always a yoke in the egg because that actually isn't the chick itself, but rather what gives it nutrients while it develops.
     
  4. My Ducks started laying at 8 months old...The eggs need to be fertilized by a Drake and then incubated for Ducklings to start developing..;)....Collect the eggs daily and then they are no different than a store bought egg...;).....


    Best wishes...


    Cheers!
