    My Muscovy ducks have been laying daily for weeks now - I live in the Northeast and thought I would not get eggs until March/April. Ducks were born in May of this year.

    10 ducks getting 4-5 eggs per day. I saved up 20 and placed in the incubator - got a few clears - two blood rings - and 13 that are developing nicely.

    Question: are other people seeing the same thing?

    Mine were born in about March, 2 started laying in September, 1 stopped after about a week, the other hatched out 12 ducklings on 12/5. Mine always seem to start laying late but it may have been the time of year that they were born.
