    I have 17 pekin and ancona duck eggs in the incubator. On day 28, I candled all of them because there were no signs of hatching. I saw movement in all the eggs but 14 of them looked about a week behind in size. I bumped up the humidity and I candled them again today (day30) and 16 of the eggs were completely filled and look ready-i even saw one duckling trying to pierce the air sac. Is there anything I should be doing to vet them to hatch? This is my first time with duck eggs..

    This is the only one where the egg is not completely filled, but it is bigger than it was two days ago.
