Hi! 
Addled ---  like scrambled?  Do the insides 'slosh' around?
My guess would be rough handling.  Were they shipped eggs?
You got 5 ducklings?  Congrats smile
The scrambled / addled ones aren't going to hatch (I'd've removed them when I saw they were bad), but I don't know how likely they are to explode. 
I wouldn't leave them in the bator TOO long past hatch day --- could turn into a mess sad

Good luck,
Lisa
