I have 6 ducks: 2 Swedish, 2 Cayuga and 2 Welsh Harlequin. My girls started laying in the spring, and I was getting about 4-6 eggs per day in their hut. It was late in Fall when all changed... they started to molt and one girl went broody on a nest she made near my deck! She was sitting on a few duck eggs and even a chicken egg! After that day, we had some harsh PA weather and I haven't gotten an egg since! I checked everywhere to see if they were laying outside, but even on days where they were in the run/hut all day, I got no eggs! Do ducks stop laying in winter like chickens... and for how long? Do you think they're laying somewhere else and not laying when they are cooped up? I'm frustrated because I bought the ducks to make up for the chickens taking a break!
