    Can a person incubate duck and chicken eggs in the same incubator? If I put the duck eggs in, then put the chicken eggs in seven days later, set the humidity for the chickens, and mist the ducks daily, will they be fine?

    People do that frequently. Just keep in mind, the more uniform your eggs, the more successful you hatch has the opportunity to become.
