Duck eggs.

How many eggs will a duck lay if she's sitting on them before she stops laying?

I don't know, I think, based on what I have read here, that it really depends on the individual duck.

My question is regarding duck eggs too, our ducks are still laying up to 17 eggs daily and both me and my wife want to know if its too late in the year for them to hatch.we live is wisconsin and with winter closing in we think we're going to have a hard time keeping them alive if they do hatch. Any ideas or suggestions would be gratefully appreciated. What should we do with the eggs if they don't hatch?
We sucessfully had 1 hatch last year and it a strong drake this year.

They can be eaten (given away, cooked and fed to dogs), or some folks find crafty people who like to blow and decorate eggs.  Have you ever seen pysanky?

If they don't hatch then throw them away. If you wait too long the eggs will become rotten and start smelling and before you know it there are maggots..yes I'm talking from experience. I kept hoping they would hatch but she didn't hatch any
