My two year old white Campbell ducks haven't laid since autumn. Should they have started again by now? Getting a bit fed you with them!

They start from the end of Feb onwards so they should be starting any day now. Only 4 of my 9 are laying yet this year and half of them are last years hatch so I wouldn't worry too much yet.

Don't worry just yet. Our ducks laid their first eggs of the season yesterday.

Congratulations!
Our campbells haven't started yet either which is a bit annoying as the aylesburys have been going well for a few weeks. Still, they've been let out a bit late recently as I've been having fox visits and want to be around whilst they are out. I think we've solved the fox problem now though so I'm looking forward to some eggs soon!

our 2 ducks have been laying all winter , only misses the odd day, we tend to put it down to their run being close to a street lamp and they get a lot of light
