    When will my Khaki Campbells lay?! They are 22 weeks old this week! I haven't seen 1 egg out of 4 female ducks. My chickens aren't laying yet either (I guess that's another story). Right now I feel like I'm running an expensive petting zoo! Anything i can do to speed up the process? Also, (I'm in CT) Is it time to provide them with winter lighting, might that be holding them up? [​IMG]

    Thanks, guys!

    Khakis are laying machines once they get going. sometimes though late season ducks wait until the following spring to start laying, or pay sporadically over the winter months. Nothing you can do to make them start before they are ready to. Provide proper diet, and wait it out.
