I have two muscurvy ducks; a drake and a duck. They've been mating for sometime now but the female duck has not produce any egg.
They roam in my yard during the day.
I have search everywhere but still can't find eggs. They also sleep in their coop at night.
Thanks for the help.

Your female will lay eggs after shes mature (6 months i believe). It has nothing to do with mating. And she could very well be laying her eggs somewhere you cant find it if they free range.

Your ducks will lay eggs regardless of wether there is a drake involved or not. No rooster - infertile eggs. Rooster - fertile eggs that you can either eat or hatch.

Please then why hasn't mine laid yet. She's about 9 month old and hasn't laid yet. I bought them from someone two month ago. Thank you.

Muscovy are seasonal layers. Basically they lay when the timing would be good for raising young. It is fall, she was recently relocated (you got her recently) so it could be spring before she lays.
