How do I encourage laying?

    I have a pair of Khaki Campbells that should have been laying by now. How old are they in average for laying? I have a mini pond, laying feed and clean bedding. They live with my flock of chickens (They grew up together) and have chicken laying boxes available. Should I use a different kind of box for them? Any signs of pre-laying I should be watching for? Thanks!

    I think they will lay when they are darn good and ready [​IMG]

    Our ducks seem to lay wherever they are at the moment, always in the early early morning.


    Good luck
