    We got two ducklings last April. One was a male and one a female. They were inseparable. Unfortunately something got the male this winter. The female was heartbroken. She tries to hang with the chickens, but seems to be rather attached to me now. My point is, I've never seen any eggs! Do you think her being depressed has delayed egg laying? She's a year old, is it possible for a duck to never lay eggs? Thanks for your advice.

    She may be hiding it...i have a few who are masters at that. She also may have gone through a lot of stress with losing her buddy, and then winter. My rouens also don't lay that much, i don't see to many eggs from them.
