    I have 5 Cayugas and 2 khaki Campbells. This summer we introduced 4 blue swedish. My girls were laying 4-6 eggs a day, but since introducing the blue swedish, it's gone down drastically! I'm lucky if I get one a day! It's been almost 8 weeks now and I'm starting to worry! Is this normal? How long should it take before they return to laying regularly?

    Finicky ducks! I'm in a similar boat as you. I guess the ducks are just trying to teach us a lesson: "Don't ever ever change anything ever again!!"
