how many eggs does a hen lay per year?
Quote:There are a lot of variables, Like how long deos the warm weather last where you are since they lay during the warm season only.How often they go broody? since they don't lay then either. WE average 87 eggs/duck in central NC where the duck house is often kept warm by the sun during the day (old greenhouse) and body heat at night when we close down tight.

Do you hatch a lot of them?
I grew up in Central NC, near Burlington
ok thanks. so i guess here in south ms she should lay until nov. or dec
Quote:It's really light dependent like most poultry, and doesn't depend on the temperature. How else can people in the northern states (MN, WI, MI) get muscovies to lay in March when winter is still far from over?
