    hi everyone, i was wondering if my ducks will sit on their own eggs and hatch well when they lay fertile eggs or go for an incubator?
    my females are indian runners, a call duck and a muscovy.....[​IMG]

    You have your own incubator in your Muscovy. Some Runners will brood and so will Call so I think you got it covered. [​IMG]

    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!)
