We got two Khaki hens on 6/8/11. One started laying on 10-27-2011. The other has not started laying yet. Assuming they are approximately they same age (based on size and development when we got them, this appears likely), the second one should start laying relatively soon, correct? Has anyone had two ducks of relatively the same age/breed that started laying at drastically different times? We humans can be so impatient when waiting for our daily gifts! Or maybe it's just a nervous less-than-one year of having ducks and keep wondering if I am missing something wrong/important~ Did you know there is a direct correlation to how many times my hens escape their outdoor pen to how cold it is outside? Ice this morning....have had three hens fly the coop. Time for netting on top the run I guess.
