    Can you tell me when they start laying eggs?

    There is some variation, depending on the duck, when it was hatched, and probably other things I cannot think of.

    Generally, I think a duck the size of Khaki Campbell would start laying somewhere between 16 and 22 weeks, similar to my runners. But they were hatched late February. If ducks are hatched much later in the year and don't reach maturity before winter, some of them will wait to lay till the next spring, from what I have read here.

    My KCs were hatched early april. One started laying in late july and the other in mid august.
    The were on grower feed up until early august and have been on layer since. They free-range daily.
    I'd guess your girl should be laying any day now.
