    How long do runners lay? My girl is a year and a half old and she is not laying, why?

    There could be many reasons your ducks isnt laying. Sometimes being a little more specific in your original post can lead to a more direct answer.

    I assume you are 100 % certain it is a female to start with. Being that age- she is certainly old enough. I assume she has laid in the past but is currently not laying right now??

    Most likely it is due to shorter day length or possible that she is not laying at the moment. Their could be other reasons- but without further information it really is a little hard to determine.

    Ditto Duckyfromoz.

    Can you tell us more about feed, housing, other behaviors?

    Does she free range at all?
