Well you might have some cross breeding and those eggs usually have varying hatch dates. Also when you put eggs in the incubator 3 days to 2 days before desired hatch date you need to stop turning the eggs and put the incubator into lockdown where you dont open it  so if you have a mallard derived breed you would need to stop turning on day 25 or day 26 for muscovy you would need to stop turning from day 33 to day 34.
