Can you hatch duck eggs the same time that you are hatching chicken eggs?
Yes you can but remember duck eggs (except muscovy which take 35 days) take 28 days to hatch. So unless you want to have a staggered hatch you should start incubating the duck eggs a week ahead of the chicken eggs.
Was just wondering about if they needed a different humidity
ducks need 55-65% humidity. not advised to hatch chickens and ducks together. They have different needs on humidity. It can be done but not the best results.
