When I candle my 2 week old incubating duck eggs, half of the egg is white as shown in the image. It is not the air sac. I can see them moving around. I've never seen this half white-ness before.
The humidity was quite high for the first 2 weeks & I am working on lowering it now. Is it water inside the egg caused from the previously too high humidity percentage? Is this normal? Will they be okay?

That's normal. What you're seeing is the growth of the allantois. It hasn't yet grown enough to go around the whole egg, and that's normal at this stage of development.
