I saw on Craigslist where other people in my area have muscovy ducklings recently hatched for sale. My trio, I was told, was starting to lay when I got them last summer. They never had any eggs, but I thought it is possible that they were still too young. I know the drake is taking care of his part, so what's up with the girls? Can they physically decide wether or not to lay eggs? If so, I'm jealous, LOL! I'm thinking that there isn't a spot in their area that provides what they would feel as safe ground cover. If I got them something like pampas grass would that make them comfortable to start nesting? Could they feel too intimidated by the drake? He isn't mean, but he is alpha duck.
