    Well I have some white perkins and ruen ducks that are 4 weeks old.

    I want to add some runners and a scovie to my flock so i can have a broody duck and some laying ducks for next year/

    How old are runners when they start laying?

    Also how old untill a scovie will become broody?

    runners normaly start to lay around 20 or so weeks. as for the scovy going broody well that is up to the duck. sometimes right after they start to lay and somethings it takes a little.
