That great news - I'm sure you must be delighted. Fingers crossed for the others! I hope you don't mind the observation, but newspaper can make it slippy for chicks and lead to leg splaying. Wood shavings covered with kitchen towel would be better for your chicks.
All the best
I am not a hatcher, but I have read that sometimes some goo sticks to them after a hatch, and they can be carefully wiped of with a small damp - something - like a cotton swab or microfiber cloth? Please verify that. How long has it been, now?
Have you seen the Hatching Forum? Lots of experienced chicken people there. I was wondering what kind of duckling had such a tiny bill!
