I have 2 brown ducks don't know what kind, started laying eggs how do I know if they will develope

I have2 brown ducks and they started to lay eggs.  1 per day in the garage and one that died in the water.  They are locked in the fenced yard during day and I put them in garage at night. They typically lay at night.  My thing is they have not laid in 2 days and only 2 are in a nest they started to build after they laid them.  Will they lay more or will they hatch??  How will I know?

Do you only have 2 ducks? If both are laying, they are girls, so no, they will not develop.

If you have males, then the girls could be laying fertile eggs. They will only hatch if incubated by somebody (either you or the ducks). You'll know because one of the ducks will sit on the eggs (28-32 days depending on breed) until they hatch.

Ones male one female. Never see them sitting on them. Will they only lay 3? I had the one under a heat lamp but the other 2 they laid in a nest they built out of straw from the garage.
