    How long does these duck lay for? Meaning their ages. I know chickens lay for 2 years then they really die off...What about ducks?Do they do the same thing?

    Don't know about Khakis, but my mallards started laying in January and haven't stopped yet.(except for an occasional time out) They are 15 months old now.

    I have a 3 year old Mallard and a 3 year old Khaki and they still lay more eggs than I know what to do with. I think a duck's production starts slowing down at maybe 4 to 5 years old.
