    Is it possible to hatch chickens and ducks in the same incubator assuming the duck eggs are set ahead of the chicken eggs?

    I'd say yes. I've hatched different breeds of duck ex- muscovy 34 days and khaki campbell 28 days at the same time. I keep the duck eggs at a higher humidity than chicken eggs but that's just my personal preference.
