    for i do not know about duck eggs but i keep my chicken eggs at 55 to 59% for the last three days of incubation, 79% may be to high?

    They should be okay.If any are stuck you you should help them, because the reason they are stuck is NOT because they are weak, but because of low humidity!:)The humidity should be abuot 80% so you are doing pretty well now!I have hatched ducks this way before, and had an 80% hatch so don't worry it will work itself out![​IMG]

    P.s good luck:D
