I lost my rooster today and just need a few more fertilized eggs. How long do you think my hens will lay fertilized eggs. One day? two days?

Sorry about your loss. Hens can continue to lay fertilized eggs for at least two weeks after the rooster is no longer present - and at times beyond that as well. Generally speaking, after one month a hen would be considered "clear" of one rooster's sperm if you were to be wanting to introduce her to a new rooster for clean breeding
