Does anyone know why waterfowl start laying their eggs in January? My call ducks started laying last week and when I had geese they layed in January too. It's all I can do to get the eggs in before they freeze, and I can't imagine they are even viable at these temps. Wild ducks don't do this do they? How could they possibly keep the eggs warm long enough to hatch not to mention trying to raise the babies in the winter.
