    Hi all! First time duck owner here. I have a cayuga (maybe a mix, got her from an assorted bunch) and a blue swedish. They're 7-8 months old now. Just wondering when they'll lay? If there is a time they typically start laying... it has recently gotten cold here so I'm not expecting much. But still would like to know, I'm getting anxious! Any signs to look for? Thanks all! You're always so much help, I appreciate any replies.

    Mine started laying a few weeks after they started playing hop on top.

    Mine has just laid her first egg and she is roughly 8 nearly 9 months old :)

    Also, there were no signs.. I just let them out and egg appeared! I was so excited. Ha!
