    I have two young ducks - a pair. The female has been giving us usually daily eggs, but over the summer less. (We're in Florida).
    Then about 2 wks ago I realized she has not been laying at all. Not even sitting on her usual places where she would lay.
    Other than that, she seems fine - eats normally, and keeps up with her mate. The people we buy our organic eggs from say
    their hens are also not laying, so I dismissed as being the weather.... but it is going on sooooo long.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks for any input!

    Is she molting? If she is having a long molt, it could stop her laying for a full month, maybe even two.
