You have your own incubator in your Muscovy.  Some Runners will brood and so will Call so I think you got it covered.  :)

Muscovy are by far the BEST duck breed for brooding :)

 

My calls will go broody now and then but they are more seasonal so only think about it in the spring. But my muscovy hatch March through November (if I let them!)
