From what I’ve read, I should expect eggs at anywhere from 20 – 26 weeks, which means I won’t see eggs until about Jan. 2oth (the hens are currently 15 weeks old).
The three ducks from the original shipment (1 rouen and 2 khaki campbells) are already 24 weeks old. The other three rouens, including the drake (not that he’ll be laying anything) are 18 weeks old. I’ve read domestic ducks usually start laying at around 20 weeks if the light is sufficient when they reach that age. Being a mere 6 days from the winter solstice, I’m going to go with a no on that one.
