My plan is to use another bator to actually do the hatching. One day 18, I'll take the chicken eggs out and move them to my backup bator and leave the duck eggs. If I only had one bator, I'd probably just leave them all together, but maybe put a barrier between the eggs, go about my business as though the duck eggs were not there, then take all the chicks out when they're hatched since ducks need higher humidity anyway, that shouldn't matter. Then I'd just let the incubating continue since lockdown doesnt happen til day 25 for ducks and all the chicks should be hatched by then. :)
That's just what I'd do. :)
