My ducks stopped laying about 4-5 weeks ago. Fron wot iv read they should lay almost all year rnd. Is this normal behaviour? I am in uk.

A lot of ducks are seasonal layers. This might be why they stopped. It's good for them to get breaks from laying.
Have you checked them for swelling?
Are they eating & drinking?
Behaving normally?
I have 2 campbells, 1 white and 1 khaki. And annindian runner cross with a cayuga i believe. They seem to be acting normal. They arent very keen on gettin too close so try not to handle unless i really have to so i dont panic them too much, so not sure bout swelling

Khaki Campbell's egg production is 165 - 210 (210 w/ artificial lighting)

So say you use supplemental lighting in winter, that still leaves 155 days where they won't lay.

Indian Runner's egg production is 180 - 200 (200 w/ artificial lighting)

Cayuga's egg production is 130 - 180 (180 w/ artificial lighting)

I hope this helps.

Edit to add: this doesn't mean that they will stop laying for 155 consecutive days. They could stop laying for 3 months and then start again and stop again later for a couple months. All duckies are different.

Looks like my Runners haven't yet received the memo they are seasonal layers and aren't suppose to be laying. I am still getting 3-4 eggs a day. Now my Muscovy's def are seasonal layers no eggs from them since Oct.
