    I have 3 Mallard hens that are about 30 weeks old. Two started laying a month or so ago shortly after the chicken hens started laying that I got about the same time. I get 1 or 2 eggs every day. Should all three be laying? Do ducks lat continuously like hens. Has anyone ever seen a chicken/duck cross. I see the roosters mating with the ducks. I had hoped for one drake out of the 3. You might know that I would be overrun with roosters with no drakes.

    My ducks don't lay continuously like chickens and the roosters might just be attacking them but I'm no expert.:)

    Can someone do me a HUGE favor? Grab one of your purebred mallard drakes and measure him for me. That way I know what size diaper to order for my guys when they get big! Here is how they want you to measure.

    I would appreciate it so much. That way I can order the diapers in advanced!
