    Is it possible for a duck to lay more than 1 egg in a day. I have 3 female ducks. This morning I collected three eggs. When i went out to the duck pen after work there was another egg laying in the middle of the pen. I know for a fact that this egg was not there in the morning as I would have stepped on it. It was laying right out in the open in the middle of the pen. The day before I only collected 2 eggs. Is it possible that the duck who didnt lay yesterday, actually laid 2 today because for whatever reason yesterdays egg didnt come out. Just wondering

    Are you sure you didn't find the missing egg from yesterday?

    Yes, it is possible. I have 3 Black Swedish ducks and I have been getting 4-5 eggs a day from them, and this has been going on since the end of January! [​IMG]

    Absolutley positive. I looked for the missing egg yesterday. I cleaned out the duck house and moved all the straw around. There was definitely only 2 eggs yesterday and 4 today. Thanks for the reply
