    Just curious, we have runner/muscovy cross ducklings. If they are hens, what might be the laying rate when they mature? I know they will be infertile.

    Quote:Mucsovy and Runners are good layers so you will probably get eggs everyday or every other.

    For what it's worth, my nine runners (just basic hatchery stock) lay between four and nine eggs a day, depending on time of year. Right now I think I have four molting and one broody, and we're getting four eggs a day.

    It's a cross breed. Anything could happen. You have no way of knowing what you've got, so you'll just have to wait and see,
