    It could be, has anything changed in their lives? A different feed, new bedding etc. It could even be a dog barking that stressed them out.

    Yes, right after I put my ducks eggs in the bator, they just stoped! [​IMG] they get their coop cleaned every three days. I put a new duck (hen) in with them, but they stoped before then [​IMG] my ducks are crazy...... Lol [​IMG]
