Just wondering if she lay soon.
when they reach 9 months in winter they wait for warmer weather to start laying. So another few weeks. Hang in there
Mine are usually 8-9 months old before they start to lay and being seasonal layers the lay spring to late fall unless your in the Deep South.
I am in Australia Queensland. It not here.
I thought she stoped coz . She in a new home.
Well that can do it too. Especially if she was laying at her old home. Usually 2-4 weeks gives them time to get settled in to a new place. Oh and mine are experts at hiding their eggs in the shavings too so egg hunts are an everyday occurrence here once they start.
That being said, yes they just need some time to settle. Muscovy is a very gentle breed. And by gentle I mean....imo they need love. It's almost like they know exactly what's going on, who they like, who they dont like. They are children. Once they have adjusted and say "hey, this is our home now" lol they will wait. Just my opinion. Please dont go googling my answer to see if I'm wrong. I probably am hahaha. This is just how mine reacted a few months ago when I first got them.
LOL I believe you I love my Muscovy's.
