    My Indian runners where laying when I had them with my chickens. I built them their own pen and they've been in there for a month now and haven't laid an egg since they've been in there. They were afraid of the chickens that's why I made them their own area I would think they'd be less stressed now. I am new to ducks any advice would be awesome!

    1) they may just need to settle into their area
    2) they may be molting
    3) they may have just been broody
    4) they might be stressed because they are in a new area
