    Does any one know how old Muscovy ducks are when they start laying eggs. I have a couple of females and one male. A friend gave them to me and I think they are about 5 months old.

    6 months to a year, but it all depends on the time of year and the maturity of the duck.

    Varies, i have had some come into lay at 4mths and then older.. averaging likely between 6 and 8mths that said depends more on their age entering winter and shorter daylight...
