    Did my nightly "duck check" of the video cameras the other night and one of the ducks laid an egg just before 11pm. Same has happened for last two nights. So I am collecting eggs twice a day. Eggs are not being laid in the nest they have made, but are plopped wherever. They have always laid in the nest in the very early morning unless it was a soft shelled egg. Anyone else have ducks laying at night? Maybe that third duck who just started laying a month ago is still trying to get things worked out.....

    Since i don't have a camera in my duck house I don't know what time my ducks lay, but usually by the time I let everyone out at 7am they have laid their eggs, when they are laying, they take the winter off since they are Muscovy. thats great your still getting eggs.
