Swedish Ducks - Good Broodies?

I know it sounds crazy, but I would rather have broody hen than an incubator. A friend of mine has Swedish ducks and I wondered what the likelihood of one going broody and setting a bunch of chicken eggs would be.

I've never had a duck, but it would be a good excuse! Our neighbors just built a HUGE pond right behind my property. If the duck were useful, my husband will let me get a few.

I know Muscovies are great mommas but I haven't been able to find an adult.
I've heard that mallards and muscovies are by far the best broody ducks. Mallards are my number one choice for broody mamas.
