Hatching duck and chicken eggs

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

i was wondering: can i hatch my call duck eggs with chicken eggs? i know duck eggs take longer so was was thinking about starting them a few days earlier and adding my chicken eggs later on but i was worried if that would mess up the duck eggs.so im not sure what to do. this is my first time incubating.

Yes, you can incubate them together. Compensate for the longer incubation time for the duck eggs by adding the chicken eggs later (pay attention to breed of your ducks, most take 28 days but some go longer). Set the chicken eggs at the appropriate time, and everyone will hatch together on the same day.
