    My understanding is most bantams go broody, or clucky as you put it. I guess you will have to see how yours do. I have a spangled old English bantam and it won't sit on eggs. As to the Pekin ducks, I have 5 females and 2 drakes. They are laying well, but they never sit on them. I imagine one must have to incubate or put them under a broody bird. I haven't tried to hatch any. I'm just making my duck eggs into Christmas ornaments.
