We have recently been given some runner ducks, although actually one of them is mixture of runner and something else. Runners are the best ducks for eggs and are normally fairly prolific layers. These started off laying well and have now just suddenly stopped. I don't know if it has anything to do with the recently warm weather or what. We are having to keep these in a pen as the geese have not taken kindly to sharing the garden with them and have done their best to make them unwelcome.
We used to have ducks in the past, before a fox had them all. They may look cute, but I had forgotten how messy they are. How can such small birds produce so much poo?! Let's hope they get back to producing some eggs soon as they are very good for baking.
