    Is it possible and/or what special measures should/do I need to take to have a successful hatch - of hatching Call Duck and Muscovy Duck eggs at the same time?

    They're laying like they're going out of style - so I though I'd toss a few in the bator.

    I just have a Little Giant - (no extra's - although I might get the automatic rotating tray so it's easier to maintain the temps without much rising and falling) ...

    With one incubator your best bet might be to start a batch of Muscovy eggs then a week later add in the call eggs. Otherwise you will have to deal with a staggered hatch.
