    My pekin duck started laying eggs 5 days ago. For first three days she layed a perfect egg in the morning but now the last two are very small and the shell is very soft. These are my first ducks so I was just wondering if this is normal, the last egg she layed in the pool. I know they don't lay much this time of the year but we were very excited to get our first eggs and the first three were so good! Thanks!

    It is normal when they first start laying, but if they have been laying for some time it could point to some problems.

    Quote:Probably just working out her egg laying equiptment, be sure she is getting Oyster shell on the side even if you feed lyer. she'll eat only what she needs. Congrats on the eggs. and laying in the pool is normal too.
