When should i expect them to start laying? They are almost a year old. Also will the one male mate with both females?

I have (Spoiled) Rouens that I hatched early last spring and they were laying before the end of summer, I'd say 4-5 months with mine, they have always free ranged but that shouldn't make much difference. I can't guess why under normal conditions yours would take so long, I'd like to know myself. Your male will do fine with the 2 females as far as breeding. Good luck.

Mine are also free range. Except right now where they are in with 4 female chickens cause we just moved, but the space is big enough for a dozen or so chickens. I dont know why either.

I have 20 acres in rural Cambridge where I hobby farm. I have chickens, ducks, geese, guineas, cats, dogs, goats, a horse and a miniature donkey.
They should have by now David. Are you sure you have females? Have you seen them mating?

I don't know much about ducks, but my son's chickens quit laying for a long time - came to find out the feed did not have enough protein in it for them to lay. :) They got into the pig's food, and started laying again soon after!
