    My 1 year old mallard hatched a clutch of eggs on March 6th. We got rid of her babies on April 25th. It is now May 25th and she still has not started laying eggs again. Is this normal? It has been 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit here. Any idea when she will begin laying again?

    Mallards are seasonal layers. After her clutch has been laid and hatched, she most likely won’t lay until next spring.

    Update: She began laying again, I collected her egg this morning. She was very proud of it and had lots to say!:lol::lau
