    I know I asked about a chicken hatching duck eggs...

    But my duck went broody, think I could slip some chicken eggs under her? Would she have the patience to wait until the chicks hatch or is the amount of time too long between the two? Would the humidity be too high?

    Don`t see why it can`t be done. You`ll have to keep the duck away from water(except drinking water) and before and after after the chicks hatch. Should work fine.

    Water isn't an issue because they are indoors until warmer weather.
    Oooh this could work really well, if calls are 27 days and chickens are 21 I could slip the eggs in next week.
    Thanks!
