I have hatched and cared for beautiful ducklings (88% hatch rate first time). However, I am getting more into Call Ducks and have ordered some Eggs.

Do any of you have specific advice for Call Duck Eggs?

I am open and learning every single day.

Read up on assisted hatching in case you need it.
Pretty much everything else is the same as other ducks other than they can hatch in 26 days.
I say can because mine tend to take a little longer than that.. with mine I have found they just begin hatching at 26.
Plenty of people have good hatches without assisting so it's not a guarantee you will have to assist so don't rush into things.
But especially if you are getting eggs shipped, you'll want to be prepared. https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/guide-to-assisted-hatching-for-all-poultry.72886/
