Muscovy duck sitting too long

Virginnia had been sitting for 43 days and no ducklings had hatch, so we took the hard descion to turf her off the eggs. She waddled around for a few days looking sad but now seems to be helping Vita look after her brood. Why didn’t they hatch? I looked at the eggs, they had developed but not all the way, maybe we had a too hot day or too cold night, not sure what to do next time to stop this happening. Suggestions welcome.
