Will a broody chicken with chicks accept ducklings

My broody chicken hatched 3 chicks about 4 days ago. I have around 30 duck eggs in an incubator and one hatched early. The rest should hatch in a day or so. I tried putting the early duckling in with her and she pecked it twice, very hard. Then she charged it, so I picked it up. Will she ever accept them or should I just move her out so I don't have to set up a separate brooding area?
