    What kind of duck?

    Is she your only duck?

    Is she seperated from all other fowl?

    If she is completely seperated and there is absolutely no chance that the egg belongs to someone else.

    It may be that you have an egg laying breed. Or it just might be time for her to start laying again. [​IMG] I haven't dealt with broody ducks, so I don't know what the typical wait would be before the resume laying again.
