    I'm hoping someone will know the answer; those are the kind of ducks I'm getting this spring. I couldn't find much about broodiness when I was doing my research. I'm not getting a drake though so I won't have to worry about babies.

    I would too! I have a chance to get a couple of swedish ducklings today after work, and hope someone will know before I get home.

    Swedish ducks in general are known to go broody on a "fair-good" basis according to Storey's guide to raising ducks...

    Thanks Nettie! I have that book, I guess I missed that part, or it's been so long since I read it I forgot.

    when my lady swedish ducks are cohabitating with a man duck, they go broody and hatch out duckies.
