    my neighbor has the pekins ducks are they are already laying, started about 2 weeks ago, he gives me the eggs because he has no use for them, I boil them, fry them, you name it! usually runners start late spring like may or april in my experience, cayugas i dunno about, they are known to be seasonal layers like in the warm summer months. hope this helps!
