    Thanks for sharing this. I have two Khaki's that are the same age...one is laying the other is not (I think). Hadn't been able to determine which was laying .....now I can give this a try!

    Quote:Your welcome. Glad you found it beneficial! Let me know how you think this works for you, as I don't have ducks right now...hopefully I'll get some soon though [​IMG]

    Well, I tried it, and either they are both laying or the test didn't help!

    They are really close in age so it may be that the second one is due to lay any day.??
