    If you keep picking up eggs from scovies so they don't have anything to lay on will they just continue to lay?

    I've heard that they can have 3 clutches a year. Any truth to this?

    When do your scovies traditionally stop laying??

    Thanks a bunch!

    They will continue to lay throughout the laying season if you keep taking the eggs. Typically they stop laying by fall.

    If you remove the ducklings from the hen after they hatch then she will start another nest. That's how they can hatch out three clutches in a year.
