I'm a little confused over the day 19 hatch comment. If set on the 18th they shouldn't be scheduled to hatch until the 15th.

Forced air or still air incubation?

Duck eggs tend to be more fragile and react worse to shipping trauma than chicken eggs.

Where the eggs overly dirty or had they been washed? Either one of the two can have an effect.

I think you can expect a ton of questions before this gets narrowed down.

TX is right about the variables. So many things can go wrong.

I have ducks due to hatch Saturday. They were from my own duck and I have never sprayed them. I have kept the water tray filled. Mine are still alive and I have 5 days left.

What kind of duck eggs are they? How do you know they died on day 3? It is hard to see anything at all on day 3 when candling.
