    I know that the muscovies are broody but i just dont think they are very cute. Does anyone have another breed of duck that is broody?

    Thanks that helped a lot! we got rouen and blue swedish eggs that are in the incubator right now and it seems that rouens are the best ones except mallards and muscovies(cant have mallards cause they fly and I dont really like muscovies) so it seems like i made the right choice

    You could clip their flight feathers.

    I used to have Khaki Campbell ducks and some mix breed KC X pekin. They went broody a lot and raised their own ducklings fine. My pure breed Pekin ducks never went broody.
