    Just about when you give up on them. I can't remember, but I'd guess about 6 months.

    I had always heard 6-8 months but my Khaki's started laying at 20 weeks and 22 weeks and I'm still waiting for my Mallard who is 23 weeks old nowto lay.

    [​IMG] So true. I had just about decided that my Khakis were never going to lay when I walked into the pen yesterday and nearly stepped on two eggs. They both started on the same day! And good grief, what do they do, play soccer in the pond with the eggs--I have never seen eggs that dirty [​IMG] Anyway, they are 22 weeks.​
