    From what I've read from other BYC users, Muscovies and Welsh Harlequins are quite good I think? Plus wild breeds like Mallards of course..

    Muscovies.....Muscovies.....oh and muscovies.....lol! All my other ducks arent laying much yet. They just turned 6 months. Anyway, I bought 2 muscovy ducks that one was a year, the other was 10 months. Anyway, the year old made a nest and started laying on eggs three days after we brought her home. Thats how great they are at going broody. Now my other one is trying to go broody as well. [​IMG] Silly ducks! But if you want broody ducks get muscovies.
