    Laying season should start when the days start getting longer. That is Dec 21, so you duck is a little early, but not by much.

    Muscovies are likely to lay this time of year, especially if they have good feed and some protection from the elements.

    I wish mine were laying. I can sell the hound out of duck eggs, not to mention I love eating them.
    They laid until a few weeks ago....unless they are hiding them somewhere. I have found their nests in strange places but I do not let them out to free range until after noon. Maybe I should dig down into their bedding to see if they are hiding any. I have 9 grown ladies.
