I don't mind the others and give them their space... I let them approach when they want and only pick them up when I need to... they've warmed up a lot since I got them...
Thats all i do, ive read you can force em to learn ur not a threat but i use a wire covered platform to inspect feets, and they "handle" well, i can send em to any part of the 100 ft long duck yard...
i jus leave em to be lay my eggs

I candled that really full one of mine again last night. Its still moving, but I don't know how it has any room in there, and I expect it will either hatch early, or suffocate. Gonna check it again when I get home in a couple of hours.
And I may have figured out part of my issue. The vent on top got partially closed, I guess I hit it. So I messed up the ventilation..
could that really be the cause? Did u ever check temps on that date? An odd duck there
