 ???  When do ducks start laying please?

I have 4 dutch hybrid aylesburys which I bought as 6 week ducklings.  I´m pretty sure I have a drake and 3 ducks although this shouldn´t make much difference.  I bought chicks at the same time and they started laying at 21 weeks and even got some eggs through the winter.  Duck eggs are white, aren´t they?  Am I just missing the duck eggs, assuming that because they´re brown that they belong to a chicken?
