Hi friends. I have four female Cayugas, one female Rouen, and one unknown breed female (I rescued her from a farm as she had a broken leg and was about to be culled). They are all over ten months old now and have NEVER laid one single egg. They should have started last summer and didn't. I understand now it's winter and may not lay until spring, but seriously??? Especially when my friend and I bought our ducks together (same breeds) and all hers are laying, even now! Are they going to be freeloaders forever?!?! Our Anconas were drakes, so this time, we went all female as my hubby was sick of freeloader ducks...hahaha! Are we destined to be egg-less forever?
