    Right now all of my ducks are running together, but this spring I plan to separate them into individual breeding groups. How long should I wait till I can safely incubate the eggs without the possibilty of mixed ducklings? I think for chickens it's 2 weeks, so I guess I'd probably be safe with 3 weeks for ducks???

    I would say 3-4 weeks to be absolutely sure.
