    I have two 7 month old Magpie ducks and a 1year old as well. The 1 year old is the momma, and she has not stated to lay again. And the 7 month old ducks have not either. Do they start again in the spring?

    Thank You,
    Jenn

    My 7 month old Muscovy ducks just started laying about 2 weeks ago and one adult just started laying this week so I'd say you should start to see eggs soon, daylight is getting longer and mating usually gets them started,. [​IMG]

    Thank you! We were getting nervous..thought we'd done something wrong. The ducks were kind of a test, and then I fell in love with the crazy animal.
