    I have no idea. A neighbor when I was a kid had ducks and geese and chickens. He had mallards and Pekins, but I don't know anything about broodiness of ducks at all.

    Just found out the pullet I've been waiting on to lay for me, is a rooster. No crowing, but lots of mating (or attempts at least) over the past few days. Oh, well.

    Wyandottes and Orpingtons and Cochins are really friendly breeds of chickens.
    Wyandottes don't usually go broody (less than a 50/50 chance, but there is a chance)
    Orpingtons do go broody (more than 50/50; say 60/40-ish)
    Cochins almost always go broody (99.9999999999999999999999999999999% lol)
    You can check out the broody hatch-a-long and informational thread. Broodiness is listed in the first post, you can pick what you want. Remember to get plenty of them if you get a breed that does go broody, b/c when they set, they don't lay. You might look for some hens that won't go broody, but are good layers (Wyandottes are very good layers and very friendly).
    If you need me to, I can post a link to the thread.

    Yeah, I forgot ChickenBoy has mallards, silly me!!! [​IMG]
    You might look for some duck threads too. =)
