I'm trying to figure out why my other female runner duck isn't laying eggs. They are the same age and they will be a year old in April. I just don't get it. The one female has been laying an egg every day since she started other then last week. I've had the girls penned for the past week to give them a break from the boys. I have 3 boys to 2 girls and 1 male pekin duck. yes, I know, I need a girl from him. I'm trying to find one. Anyway, I just can't seem to figure out why the other duck isn't laying. There is now a 2 month old female with them and I'm afraid to let them with the boys. I feel the 2 month old duck is just to young to be mated with. Am I wrong??? I don't know what age is safe...... that's the only work I could think of..... LOL. I have 12 4 day old baby ducks in my bathtub at the moment. Only 4 are females. No more hatching eggs from that duck...... she puts out all boys! They all have homes soon.
