ok, so last summer I bought one indian runner duck and one runner drake. also 4 Cayuga ducks, and one Cayuga/ indian runner cross duck. The cross and the indian runner started laying last fall, and this spring, the cayugas joined them. for a couple months we were getting 6 eggs a day...way more than we need. We decided to see if they would go broody and stopped collecting for a while. One of the cayugas and the cross did go broody, and last month our eggs hatched. Sadly, we lost a few babies, but we still have 7 babies left, 6 adult ducks, and 1 adult drake. Our egg production slowed after we stopped collecting, and as of 2 weeks ago, completely stopped. I know cayugas mostly lay in the summer, but my cross and runner started laying even later in the season than this last year. How can I jump start their egg production again?? My wife just had to purchase chicken eggs...lol.
