This is my first time incubating eggs and two of my duck eggs are hatching today they aren't supposed to until tomorrow is this ok? Should I worry about it? Please any advise would be much appreciated

Sometimes an incubator is actually running a little warmer than the thermometer indicates, sometimes they will pip early and not hatch for another 24 + hours.  I doubt that you have anything to worry about.

I've had a white leghorn rooster hatch upside down before. I had to eventually help him out. He grew up fine but was crazy as a loon. Making weird noises all the time and would fly up in the air for no reason. Loony Larry we named him

How did the 'hatch' go?
