I am new to the forum and am delighted to have access to your knowledge and experience to help me work out what's going on with my khaki campbell ducks.
First problem is that my 2 ducks have not laid any eggs since I got them last autumn. They are approximately 2 years old, look healthy and appear to be quite happy with their setting. Any ideas why they are not laying?
Second problem - one of the two ducks is very broody and really only wants to lie in the nest box all day. That is very upsetting as when I go to see her, she is heavy breathing and generally not herself. What can I do to try to stop the broodiness? I have closed the door to her shed so she cannot get into the nest box, but her calls are such that I feel cruel not letting her do what nature demands of her. Of course, there are no eggs there to brood over!
Any help will be gratefully received. Thank you again.
