Please tell us more. :) Breed, age, and what is her living situation like. Have you recently moved? How hot is it (have you had any sudden fluctuations in temps)?

Well she laid an egg later this morning what a relief. She is a khaki 4 1/2 months old she is a sweet heart. And her mate is a drake same age he is a laugh a minute. Thank you for the reply.

When they first begin laying it can be just like you described. Lay a few then no egg for a few days.. But they work the kinks out in short order. Don't get worried when she takes a break from laying too. That usually will last a week or more but necessary to rest her body. That's what my Scovy's do anyway not sure about KC's maybe different.

Well many ducks stop laying if yu have cold winters, and they always stop laying while they molt. Just so yu're aware

True my Muscovy's stop laying early Oct. and don't start back till usually march of next year. But it's lack of day light that stops the laying process they need about 14 hrs of daylight to make and egg when that wanes laying can stop or slow way down.
