    Okay, so I have ducks and they started laying two days ago. They are around six months old. My only females are two welsh harlequins and one black swedish. The first day there was one egg just in the yard. The second day there were TWO eggs in the yard! I assume its the welsh harlequins laying because I've heard there pretty good layers. Anyway, I didn't know ducks even layed eggs in fall or winter time. I thought they layed like 20 eggs and made a nest in the spring! Are they like chickens and lay an egge everyday? I'm very confused...Thanks!! [​IMG]

    It has a lot to do with your location and the breed. Some lay almost every day while others are more seasonal. My ducks lay on and off.
