    I do believe you need to relax.

    I also think you have 1 to many males. They are persuing your ducks a bit early. You know she's mine, no she's mine, again and again. You need to decide which male to keep and get rid of, rehome, serve the other.

    Are your girls on layer feed yet?

    Are your girls locked up at night, they should be laying early in the morning.

    My Muscovies Hatched in March and aren't laying yet, so these guys are maturing a little early. Don't know about Pekins, really. Just curious do you have them on Purina Flock Raiser?

    With my pair of ducks, i reckon my scovie drake matured atleast a month earlier [​IMG]
    was always worried about it... then one day found a few eggs in the nest. And a few more everyday til soon the duck had gone broody and i ended up with duckies [​IMG]
