    We have a mallard duck that is 10 weeks old, when will she start laying? Will she lay them in her coop or do you think that she will hide them from us? And when will the drake try to mate with her? When will the drake get his male colors? [​IMG]

    I think around 16-20 weeks of age. I'm still waiting on my Blue Swedes so I'll let you know for sure.
