    Hi, i have 2, 7 month old Khaki Campbell ducks. They started laying eggs about 5 days ago. I found 4 eggs ( guessing hubby missed the first two on sunday) monday, nothing tuesday then 1 on wednesday and thursday. Is it normal for them to start laying gradually like this? These are my first ducks, so definitely still learning. :) On a side note...tried duck eggs for the first time this week and yummy! :D

    Yes, ducks will not lay every day. Yours are only coming into lay for the first time. They are very good and prolific layers though, you can look forward to lots of eggs.

    I have 3 khaki hens as well as one hybrid duck. They started laying around 7 months, and I get on average 3-4 eggs a day, occasionally only 2 eggs a day. They lay more than my chickens do!
