    I don't know. It seems odd if most of your hatches are commonly later. Could your temp have been a bit high? Mine are all a couple of days early--chicken or duck it doesn't seem to matter, I dialed the temp back 1.5 degrees and still have early hatches, even the ones I put under broody hens are a day early so I'm starting to think it's normal.
