    My call duck who stopped laying back in September has just started laying. It is so warm here I'm worried she thinks it is Spring. Does anyone have experience with a confused little duck like this? Will she stop when it goes back to being colder? Is she going to be ok? In her first year she had egg issues but last summer was her second year and we got through it fine with no problems. This morning was a bit scary watching her run for her nest and then being all uncomfortable til it came out. [​IMG]

    Was she molting when she stopped? My khaki and ancona have both been laying everyday for the past month or so, but I don't know about call ducks and if they lay year round. Hopefully someone else will be able to help you out.
