    Your guineas likely will not lay until next springs. Generally they lay March-August.

    What type of ducks do you have? Egg laying in ducks depend a lot of the breed. Some ducks are lay certain times of the year and some lay almost year round.

    I'm really not sure.

    I know a couple are Mallards. I was told but silly me did not write it down.[​IMG] They are gray mostly.

    Guineas are usually at least 16 weeks when they start to lay but this time of year they might not lay until next spring.

    This time of the year guineas are finishing up their laying. You will most likely not get any eggs until May.

    Some ducks begin to lay around 28 weeks.
