    Sorry to hear that . Plan on getting another for her? We have a male and 2 female Pekings. They started laying about a few months ago. One of our girls lay a huge double yoker almost every other day. Seems like they lay better then our chickens! I love the ducks, they are so soft and squishy! Donald makes me laugh when he thinks I am gonna hurt his girls ! He acts real tough!

    I wish I could get her a friend but I'm going to have to wait until I'm in a different living situation. My duck, Soleil, started laying early when she was 4 months. I was told it's not uncommon, that she's healthy and happy. She's also an indoor duck and it's been impossible to get her to stop laying. Did your girls stop laying for the winter?

    No our girls are still laying strong . Sometimes they have laid soft eggs but usually they are good. Hoping to hatch some this year. Since Donald has been quite the stud!

    Nope - Kat.
    Every day I ask myself if it's weird that I have a goose and a couple of ducks on my FB friends list; then I think to myself why not? :D

    Oh HI! I was going through my friends list trying to figure it out hah. And no, it's not any weirder than giving Soleil her own FB page :)

    Nope, no weirder. Lately I've been thinking my geese Tuffy and Lucy need one of their own too. ;)
