@vishal vish   as with alot of domestic breeds some will sit and brood eggs and some don't. You just never know till  you leave some eggs in the nest and see if you have any takers. There are members on BYC that have Runners who go broody so you may get some broody's out of your Runners. I hope so if that is what you want. They are such great ducks. 

 Western N.C ~ 17 chickens= EE's, Game, variety of bantams,1Light Brahma, 2 Black Australorps . 5 Muscovy ducks, 8 Indian Runners and 2 Buff Orpington Ducks, 1 Embden gander,1 Toulouse goose , 3 mini Dachshunds, 2 mixed breed, pond goldfish,  and a wonderful Husband who makes it all possible..

Do you know somebody whose runners go broody
post #4 of 9

my runners do go broody.  If you leave the eggs they will sit.  Mine were not the best mothers once they hatched but they were determined sitters.

So if i leave the eggs means they will hatch
post #9 of 9

Not necessarily. But if you leave the eggs, maybe one of the ducks will go broody and sit. And if she sits, maybe she will sit long enough for them to hatch.
