Heck yes! This is prime chicken real estate! My top couple tips are:
Make the roosts higher than the nest boxes
Make the nest boxes accessible...
1000 cichlids?!? holy moly! how big is your aquarium!? Your filtration must be massive! (my back hurts just thinking about those water changes!)
you should candle the eggs (shine a flash light through in a dark room) and check the air cell size. That will tell you about what day you are at....

Good luck! Ducks are a lot of fun, but SOOOOOO messy!
ducks need water that they can submerge their heads in, in order to clear their nasal passages of food. Also, your pekins will be twice the size...
