    So I hope this isn't a dumb question, but can I put pekin duck eggs and chicken eggs together in an incubator. I'm getting an incubator tomorrow and my pekin duck has only laid four eggs so i was thinking about putting some chicken eggs in with them. Thanks

    You can, but set the pekin eggs one week earlier than the chicken eggs so that they all hatch at the same time.
