    Anyone ever done this?

    I am planning to move my ducks and chickens to a different building on the property. This will allow them a bigger coop and an acre pasture.

    If you have done this did the ducks stop laying until next spring? [​IMG]
    Or did they stop for a time and then start back up. [​IMG]

    Thanks.

    I just got a trio of ducks, about a month ago, from a farm about 45 mins away. The ducks laid one egg the 2nd day then nothing for 9 days and started laying pretty consistently after like the 10th day. So, you shouldnt have much time to wait :)..
