    Hi everyone,

    We just got 4 ducks this Christmas, a pair of Blue Orpington Ducks, and 2 Femail White Campbells. Please any help with these questions would be much appreciated.

    1) The Pair of Orpingtons have been seen mating multiple times even though it is January. Is this normal? if so will we have fertile eggs soon? We saw the male in the duck house trying to make a nest a few days ago, but since then it has just become trampled.

    2) On the first few days that we got them we had eggs regularly for a few days but now we aren't getting any. It has been 2 weeks since our last egg. Is this normal and will we get eggs soon? And is there anything we can do to make them lay?

    3) I'm told that ducks don't make nests and that they just lay their eggs on the ground in their house. Is this ok?

    finally, as we have 3 females, will the male mate with all of them even though the other two are different breeds?

    Thank you for reading this and any help would be widely appreciated :).
