    I bought some saxony duck eggs that came and are resting and I was wondering if I could have some chicken eggs (preferably bantam) to hatch with them. I got the whole lockdown situation figured out. I would have the duck eggs in there for 7 days then put the chicken eggs in so lockdown would be the same. Is there any other problems with hatching duck and chicken eggs in the same incubator? I need to know before I buy chicken eggs.

    yes, no problems at all incubating and hatching together, ducks need different feed and different water containers then chicks so it's best to brood them separately.
