WHen do ducks start laying??? It's still very cold here in Mass, about 40 day temps and night can be 25-30 usually. Sunrise about 6:30 and down about 5. Day length is increasing!! yeah! I'd like to know so I can make sure the girls have their own place to lay and I can find the eggs. I learned from chickens, they lay were ever they feel comfortable and it isn't always in a nest box.
