    We have 5 ducks (3 Hens and 2 Drakes). This morning in the coop there were four eggs....is it possible for ducks to lay twice a day? I don't completely understand the duck thing because they are fairly new to us. We just decided to try this out because we heard ducks eggs were good. Can anyone help me understand this. Thank you!
