:welcome you definitely came to the right place to get all your info! I'm no eggspert but I did well with lots of reading. My biggest advice is, duck eggs like being turned. The embryos have a habit of sticking to the side of egg if not turned properly anf regularly. I have an egg turner in mine that holds them pointy end down and my biggest issue was embryos sticking to top of egg. This time during the day for the first couple of days I did manual turning and this time they look like they are all growing properly :fl
