How often do call ducks lag eggs?

    My call ducks are 10 months old and this is their first time laying eggs. My 2 hens started laying every second day . Two weeks have past and recently I have been getting eggs daily. Is that normal? Do call ducks generally lay an egg a day?

    Yes that is normal, although call ducks are seasonal layers like mallards. Congratulations on the eggs! :D

    Okay, so what is season that call ducks lay in? Will they lay all summer?


    One hen seems interested in going broody. If I keep putting her outside will it break it, or will she stop laying eggs at this point?

    Thanks!
