    ~~We have four ducks living in our hen coop with four hens two roosters, none of them or laying and haven't done so in 3months..there getting well fed, plenty of exercise and we regularly clean out the coop, we recently added decoy eggs into the coop to encourage laying but we still have no eggs:(. is there any reason why they wouldnt be laying?

    Wait about another 45 to 60 days as it is winter time and egg laying tends to cease this time of year [​IMG]

    Could be due to the low light and cold days of winter, or possibly something else.

    You might want to post this question in the duck section of the forums....
