A hen with ducklings?

In the spring I had a duck to hatch 13 babies. We were having cold wet weather at the time and one by one they started dissappearing. I thought something was killing them until I started finding them in the grass, dead. They were getting cold and wet and for some reason the mother duck just kept taking them all through the wet grass. If I hadn't caught the remaining 4 babies and put them in my brooder, I wouldn't have saved any of them. I decided to "set" a hen on 10 duck eggs and 6 chichen eggs. It worked wonderful! She hatched them all and she doesn't mind when her babies get in the little duck pond. She takes them in the chicken house at night. Has anyone out there ever tried this?
