We have had chickens in the past but last Spring we got ducks. They started laying in August/September 2017 and continued until about the middle of December then they stopped. I wasn't to alarmed at first as chickens always slowed in the winter months. However, it is now almost April and they haven't resumed laying at all. I feed them layer feed but am I missing something? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

If you find out let me know My Runners, Buffs and Muscovies haven't laid since last fall.

I feed layer and have oyster shell out for them. They are breeding so shouldn't be much longer.
Maybe weather has played a role this year it's been crazy here.

I think they're more seasonal than chickens--my muscovies haven't resumed either and with our crazy weather (got a foot of snow a few days ago) I don't expect them to until maybe mid April this year.

My Runners and Buffs laid the whole year their first year I had them which was 2016-17 until fall, I have read other say their ducks laid in winter. I am actually glad mine slowed down I was worried about them laying for so long.

My Muscovies Have always been spring layers thru early fall. Maybe also depending on where we live because I have a friend who lives in Texas her Muscovies lay and hatch all year long.

KC being a bred for egg production probably need a well deserved vacation from laying too.
