    Hi everyone This is my first time with ducks but I have posted questions here before about them. My first question is will my ducks lay this year or not? The girls are all 23 weeks old and are there any signs they will lay soon? My second question is that I have a big drake. He is bigger than the rest and if I breed him will the big duck gene be passed on ? Thank you

    Dunno about the eggs, if you have a light on them theres a chance they will.
    About the big duck, if you mate him with another big duck, it will likely pass on.

    What are they lookin at?
    Also the girls are always smaller than the boys of the same breed(or at least should be).
