    @vishal vish as with alot of domestic breeds some will sit and brood eggs and some don't. You just never know till you leave some eggs in the nest and see if you have any takers. There are members on BYC that have Runners who go broody so you may get some broody's out of your Runners. I hope so if that is what you want. They are such great ducks.

    my runners do go broody. If you leave the eggs they will sit. Mine were not the best mothers once they hatched but they were determined sitters.

    Not necessarily. But if you leave the eggs, maybe one of the ducks will go broody and sit. And if she sits, maybe she will sit long enough for them to hatch.
