We have several ducks, 23 to be exact, - pekins, swedish, runners, rouens, mallard, etc. and we get eggs every day. None of them ever sit on them, which is pretty normal from what I've read on here. We would like to have some babies at some point, so it seems that my choices are to incubate the eggs we find, or get a duck that will actually have some babies. I don't really have time to incubate eggs so a momma duck it is LOL. I have been reading and it seems that muscovies are great mommas and like to be broody, so that is what I'm thinking of getting. They are readily available in my area, but before I run out to the swap meet and get a few I had a few questions.... Will the girls sit on other birds eggs? I have read that they steal other ducks eggs, and will even sit on goose eggs, is that true? If that's the case, then it seems like I could get a couple hens to be surrogates? Or should I get a muscovy drake and a couple females and let them do their own thing? I have read that a few muscovy can quickly become a large group, but I will sell or give most of them away if it becomes a problem. Sorry if these are dumb questions, just trying to get some more info. Thank you.
