    I have four runner hens and its been almost a year since they last laid? Their not molting , getting proper feed also. Is there a reason why they stop laying? they are two years old could that be it? We clean out their coop almost all the time but ya gotta love ducks always messy lol........

    iamcuriositycat had a problem with ducks not laying and discovered a contaminant in their water.

    So you might want to look into something in their environment, or consider whether something could be stealing eggs.
