    I have a rouen hen and a khaki campbell and rouen drakes. And while I was on a sleep over my mom found a white egg! And none of her chickens lay white eggs its gotta be hers right?

    Congrats on your first duck egg, it's always so exciting. if she has a pen of her own then she will probably lay by sun up, most ducks lay early. by 8:00am at least. where did your mom find this egg?

    Quote:If it was me I'd make the girls of some kind of enclosure where they can go in private to lay their eggs that way you will know where to look and they would be less apt to get broken. Don't you have to worry about predators?

    Nope. Plus I couldnt pen them up, my mom took my fence for a chicken pen. I told her if something got my ducks she had to buy me more. But I just pened them up today, I put her and he boyfriend in one, and my two calls a my khaki in the other. I will make her, her very own pen for her and her boyfriend, they cant be without eachother, she will go crazy! So will he, they are ment to be no lie!

    Quote:Thats sweet. and your saying you don't have preds? If she has a designated place to lay her egg she will probably use if especially for brooding.

    Nope, no preds! so if I give her a safe place until ductopia is done, she might sit on her eggs?
