I'm new to ducks. I have a kakhi cambel and a runner duck that had been laying very well this summer. I am sure my runner is molting. She hasn't laid in more than a month. My kakhi cambel stopped laying about that time but she doesn't seem to be in molt. How long till they get back in business
It takes mine about 3 months from when they stop laying to when they start again. Mine stop laying a few weeks then molt and once they are done molting it's a few more weeks to lay. Some of my ducks drop all their feathers at once and others slowly lose them. Also daylight hours will affect laying. Since the days are shorter that may be why the KC isn't laying anymore.
I also have the first year of molting for my indian runners with not laying also but they are also louder than normal. Screaming at everything. While this slow down once they start laying again or is this permanent?
