    My indian runners successfully hatched 4 ducklings and are being very good moms so far. The ducklings are about 3 weeks old now. All are doing well. My question is how long before the females start to lay eggs again? I want to make sure I am watching for them

    Thanks

    it depends.. usually when the clutch is raised and able to take care of themselves the hens will lay again after but it takes them awhile to start laying again. But don't give up on them.
