    Hi there,

    I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Angel and I currently have 2 chickens and 8 ducks. We have 4 Indian runners, 1 Khaki campbell and the rest are a mix between the two. We bought 4 in Oct, none of which have laid yet [​IMG] and just purchased the 4 indian runners (1 is a drake) that were laying, and low and behold we got an egg for 2 days and now have not been getting any eggs. I joined this site hoping I could get some support and maybe understand what's going on with these ducks. We live in Ontario so it has started to get chillier and darker earlier. I read they didnt need a heat lamp if they had the right amount of space, but wondering if maybe they do need some sort of light in their house.
    Thanks for allowing me to join, and look forward to learning and becoming part of your community [​IMG]

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I don't raise ducks so I can't help you much. You will want to stop by our Ducks section to chat with our Duck experts on this...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

    Good luck with your ducks. And we do welcome you to our flock!
