    Ok.... WHAT is going on!? I checked for eggs just the other day. I have two ducks that are females but one hasn't ever laid eggs before. The other was laying every other day then stopped after she molted. When she started laying again it was speratic. Now I go out and over night I have TEN eggs. Can ANYONE tell me what's going on??!?!?!?![​IMG][​IMG]

    That is strange. I sometimes don't see the duck eggs laid right away because my silly ducks like to bury them.

    They must have been hidden in the bedding. It's a physical impossibility for them to have been laid 'overnight.'
