bought a pekin duck a few months ago and for about two weeks it has been laying eggs.... It took awhile to figure out if it was a female or not... but anyway i bought a drake today and was wondering if the female pekin will sit on her eggs or should buy a bator( and is so what is the best one i can get for a cheap price)

My young Rouens are already going broody ... two sets this year. I know nothing about Muscovies personally, but they are a different 'duck.' If you cross them, the resulting ducklings will be sterile. Folks are here have said they do a great job of setting.
