I set 9 eggs from my own ducks this morning after I found my pekin drake was gone

and I found the females nest. I had no clue she was even laying eggs until searching for him. I so want these eggs to hatch even just one to carry on my Lucky Duckies genes he was so sweet! So I am sad, excited, and very nervous due to my horrible hatching rates. The egg I cracked had a bulls eye so I think they are fertile, I just don't know how long they have been there.

Mama duck also layed another egg today which I added. Here is a question... should I just keep adding the eggs as she lays or should I gather them and add them all at once? They say the eggs will continue to be fertile without the drake for 14 days. What do I do with them while I am gathering?

Thank you for the good lucks it is so appreciated.
