I have one Rouen duck that is doing the mating dance thing with her drake and I'm wondering what weird places to look for her eggs. Where have you found your first duck egg? It's been fun searching every morning - like Easter every day - but I'd hate to miss them and have to dump them because I didn't know how old they were - assuming I found them before the crows. We are building a duck house for the winter, but right now they free range in an enclosed area. Is it too late for her to want to hatch out ducklings? I also have a flock of 7 (5 ducks, 2 drakes) Welsh Harlequins that are 9 weeks old - will they lay at the end of the summer, or will they just wait till next season? The area that they are in right now is about 80 x 80 ft, good sized but not impossible to search. There's no brush or tall grass, but there are lots of apple trees.
