    Does anyone have ducks that lay at other times of the day than early morning? If so, do they regularly lay at that time? Thanks!

    The odd one will lay in the afternoon but only once in a while since their egg cycle isn't exactly 24 hours...

    You just reminded me one of my ducks didn’t lay her egg this morning. And she does this occasionally so I knew she would lay it later in the day- sure enough I look out in the run and see it covered in muck! :sick

    So, in my experience- no it is not regular. Just occasionally.
