Here at Eco-Gites of Lenault we have 2 types of ducks:
Runner ducks: think Jemima Puddleduck, who (supposedly) lay lots of eggs but are no good for eating as they are too skinny and make hopeless mothers as they never go broody.
Muscovy ducks who don't lay as many eggs, made great birds to eat (mmmm, crispy duck pancakes) and are (supposedly) great mothers who go broody after laying a clutch of eggs.
The problem is we used to have 5 Runner ducks .... Ernest the male and 4 ladies. However Lucy turned out to be Lucius so I sold him, Monsieur Renard ate Jemima and Edna died.
