    My sister has two call ducks and the duck has laid about 21 eggs. 14 are currently in an incubator the rest are with her. How can we stop her laying?

    simple answer, you can't. However you don't have to incubate all the eggs and you could use some in the kitchen even if they are fertile they won't hatch or form young chicks in the shell unless given the right incubation conditions so can be stored in the fridge and used as per normal.

  3. call ducks can lay up to 80 eggs per year so unless you actually want ducklings they are best collected daily and enjoyed in cooking here is an interesting link for you about call ducks
