    My khaki campbells laying has slowed down tramendously, and they are molting as well. I was wondering if the molt might have anything to do with it.

    I think molting will slow or stop egg laying, at least in chickens. Probably in ducks too. Maybe someone with more knowledge will come along?

    My duck just stopped laying too. She's also molting. I was concerned that something tramatic happened to her but i feel better knowing it's just the molting
