    How old do muscovies have to be to lay eggs? I have one that is about 24 weeks old. The 2nd one I have I don't know how old it is but it's the same size of my other girl.

    Mine were always 6 months +. Being that the one is 24 weeks now, I'd expect here to start laying this spring.

    It varies, my first ones started at 4mths, now this is on the rather young side. My others were older, i think around 6mths is probably average.
