I have had a silkie hen sitting on 4 duck eggs for about 5 days now and was wondering about putting some silkie eggs under her too... just wondering if this is ok to do or is it not a good idea. I have read duck eggs incubate in about 28 days and only about 21 for chickens so just wondering if its a good idea and when should the silkie eggs go under her?

If you were to do this put the chicken eggs under when the duck eggs have been under the hen for 6-7 days.
