    I'm not sure it would be a good idea to introduce a new drake while she is brooding eggs.... just my thought. Might want to wait until she has raised her ducklings, otherwise it could add a lot of stress to her.

    Are her eggs fertile ??? If not go for it. If they are I think she will give up sitting on them or feel more stressed trying to protect them from a new intruder....

    Just my thought process.
