    so im trying to hatch duck eggs in a forced air incubator and its day 26. i didnt know there was so much care for duck eggs and the more i read i noticed i didnt do most of the things. anyways its day 26 which i have said and they suppose to hatch in 2 days but when i candle them there is alot of room in the bottom probably about as much room as in the top of the egg any advice? will they hatch. my humidity is around 55 right now should it be raised the next couple days? its making me sad because i would hate for them to die. right now i have movement in all my eggs.

    Don't candle them just leave them there and keep the incubator shut just make sure the temperatue and humidity is right and you will be fine

    Just cross your fingers and hope for the best, it seems to me you are doing find and if the eggs dont hatch it's just pure bad luck
