What I understand your chicks and ducks died because you first did not roll the eggs. So your second load was rolled but still bad hatch ratio?
Maybe you handle them rough when rolling or they come out damaged from shipping and they cannot form well. I don't know anything about purchasing eggs though.

By the way, Last Days humidity as far as I know should be at least 70%.
