    Well this her first time hatching anything. Will it work??? I think it is cute and we will just see what happens but has anyone had success with hens hatching ducks. I know my mom does but she has a totally diff set up than me. I just never had it happen before. Mom ended up with Chuck the duck a duck that thought he was a chicken. So any advice or tips would help.

    Our silkies just started hatching our pekins eggs this week. Our 4th hatched tonight. So yeah its possible. Although I separate them once there dried up and not so weak.
