So my beautiful runner ducks are turning into quite the little free-loaders. I have five runners and they are all just over a year now (except for one older gal, but she gets a free pass if she decides not to lay anymore, she has earned it!) I am wondering if anyone has ever experienced issues with nest competition or some other reason why my normally prolific layers aren't laying. Food is consistent: I have been feeding them the same kind, now in the evenings. I wonder if my friendlier calmer Cayugas, khakis and welshies are just gobbling more food and the excitable nervous runners aren't getting enough...leading to nonexistent egg laying Bedding material is the same, but I wonder if because if my 12 new ducks are hogging or becoming territorial of the nests. Here's the thing though, usually I find multiple eggs in each nest and sometimes there is one nesting site that is completely unused, so why wouldn't they opt to use that one?? (Unused nest changes occasionally) Hoping these ladies step it up again, occasionally I find one green egg maybe every couple of days. Going to scour their free range area and see if they have a hidden nest where they are piling them. I wait until 10 am the latest to let them out hoping they laid already. Any help appreciated!
