  1. I have 3 khaki campbells, 1 drake, 2 ducks. I got them from, the east of england autumn show. I have had them for a week, and they have not started laying. when do you think they will start laying.

    Quote:I could swear I answered this question for you before that east of england bit sticks in my mind maybe it was that you didn't think they were eating right before? anyways a move is likely to stop their laying for a time. Do you know if they were laying for their former owner? they may be young yet. anyways you don't think of starting a family until you are settled in and are confortable. If they were too young you might have to wait until spring but I really expect they should restart again any day. Campbells are known for their laying, better than chickens even!
