    I have one duck that just started laying last month (khaki campbell). She only lays in pool when she's swimming!

    Any clue how to stop her? It makes it hard to collect the eggs...

    Thanks!

    I think there was something on this a few weeks ago, does she have a good home/house she can go to at night with a decent nesting spot?

    Yes, she does. There are 4 other of her breed and 9 chickens in the same coop (which has a building and two different out side runs, they all seem happy to lay, things are clean, there's good space. Most of the ducks lay in with the chickens, one of them seems to lay in the ground in one of the outside chambers, but this one lays in the pool.
