    I have raised 4 breeds of ducks, 3 of which went broody atleast one time per year. Muscovy, mallard(currently on nest), and calls. In my experience scovies tend to be more protective mom's. The calls wanted to all go broody at the same time, I had a little house for them to make a nest in and each duck took a corner and built up a nest in it. My current broody duck, my mallard hen is abit protective but not so much as the scovie was of course she hasnt even hatched hers yet and is on 5 eggs.
