Can’t remember if I’ve already asked this before (and if I did, I didn’t get a straight answer) but quick question...which breeds of duck will positively go broody if I want to naturally hatch Ducks? I’m hatching a big variety of ducks in an incubator this spring and then keeping and raising them. So which breeds go broody? I want at least one broody hen duck.

Muscovies seem to be popular. I had a black swedish that did the whole disappear and reappear with babies, and a blue swedish (her birth mother) that would always go broody and hatched a nest or two
Oh nice. I’m not necessarily free ranging mine so disappearing shouldn’t be a problem. Do Mallards, white Crested Pekins, Campbell’s, or Cayugas go broody?
