I'd say give it a shot. The chicken eggs will obviously hatch sooner but they'll hatch soon enough so you won't mess up the ducks' incubation. Let's see those eggs when you get a chance and figure out what's going on. They might just be small duck eggs....

I am hopeing they are maybe small duck eggs, thats what my sister said they are prob just small, maybe they are call duck eggs? They are white and look like leghorn chicken eggs. I told my mom that if they are chickens and they do hatch she can have them, im not in to chickens that much and my mom wants them I think it would be a nice present though dont you think? Lol they will be put in the bator soon I sure hope they hatch though!

You are holding them wrong. The air cell should be in the big end of the egg which is how you should hold them when you do candle. I see the air cell on the pointy end of at least one of those eggs so they probably had a rough trip. You need to put them in a carton or turner in the incubator and leave them alone for a while so the air cells can *maybe* reattach.
