    I have duck and chicken eggs that are incubating together. I started them all at the same time though because I was afraid the chicken eggs would get old if I waited a week for them all to be on the same time...(since duck eggs take a week longer)....have a screwed things up by doing this? Will I be able to just leave the duck eggs in a week longer? I just got thinking about it and realized I will have to stop turning for the chicken eggs and the duck eggs will be in there!
