I have 10 females and 2 (maybe 3) males. This is my third winter with them. I used to get about 9 eggs per day, it didn't matter what the season. Toward the end of summer the amount of eggs started to drop off. I thought maybe it was seasonal/molting/etc. Well, it has been about 2 or 3 months now that I have been getting almost no eggs. For the last couple weeks I may have gotten 6 eggs total. I am soooo frustrated. I'm used to the chickens slowing down in the winter, but the ducks? The reason I got them in the first place is that I knew they'd lay more consistently. I keep telling the girls that they don't want to know what happens when ducks get fired... Does anyone have any ideas? The only issue I can think of is maybe the duck that I think is a boy. My neighbors brought it over when it was a duckling...about 3 or 4 weeks old. They found it and it had supposedly been abandoned. I think it's a Muscovy. (it was the ugliest duckling I had ever seen!) I was told by one of my customers that Muscovy drakes eat a ton, and could possibly be eating the eggs, too. I check the duck yard several times a day and there are no eggs at all. Or evidence of broken ones. I'm sorry for such a long post, but I'm really at a loss. I'd appreciate any input on this. I'm losing so much money on feed without being able to sell their eggs! Here's a pic of a few of them the other day- including the one I suspect is a Muscovy. He's the dark one on the left. Am I right...Muscovy drake?
