    For those who raise Erupeon wigeon and Cinnamon teal when do they start laying?

    When I kept cinnamon teal they began nesting in early April each year. European wigeon started in mid May/early June. Each location is different though, southern birds tend to breed earlier as do those kept under lights.

    Here in Michigan the Cinnamons start the end of April and the Europeans are normally a few weeks later

    Thanks Waterdog. Do you still have success breeding the blonde American Wigeon?
