I have got my broody silkie hen sitting on 4 pekin duck eggs as from yesterday. I didn't set the eggs for 24 hrs (as recommended!) before I placed them under my hen. Will this affect the eggs in a major way?

Does anyone have any experience hatching duck eggs under a broody hen? Any advice would be much appreciated.
