okay, so, i know that ducks have a season, and that they stop laying at their season. can anyone tell me what that season is? this could be perfectly normal. but, i have had a lot of snake problems in the past, and that could be what is happening also. i do have a drake to encorage my girls to lay, and i have caught them sitting on my chicken/duck coop as if they were about to lay, but no eggs. the chicken coop has been searched thoroughly, but no snake. i check for eggs in the morning, evening, and once or twice in the afternoon. also, more than eighteen hens have been laying 4 eggs a day. i have not found any shells or evidence that my hens are eating the eggs, and they don't seem interested in the eggs until i pick them up. (must be hoping that i drop one so that they can eat the yolk... had that happen once.) sooo, can i please have some help!!!!!
