    I've never had Muscovy's but if they are like my Khaki's it will be about 6-7 months. The males will start "making friendly" with the the females long before they will start laying. (In my experience) I though once they started "making friendly" they eggs would be soon to follow. But it was about 2-3 months before I saw the first egg. GOOD LUCK! All baby ducks are cute in my opinion! [​IMG]
