    House them seperately if you only want to hatch one breed.

    I just googled "khaki Campbell egg color" and " Muscovy egg color" and they look the same. Both white duck eggs.

    There is a difference if you know what to look for!
    The khaki eggs will be smaller.
    Also, the muscovy eggs tend to be shiny. I know it sounds weird, but all of the muscovy eggs I've collected over the years have been shiny and very very smooth. I have many other breeds and no other duck has eggs like that.
