My Duck Laid Eggs in the House

My mallard hen decided to come into my home; she followed my chicken hen inside. I was running bath water and she jumped in the tub with me after I bathed. She decided to stay and chose my bathroom closet to lay her nest of eggs. She is now brooding her eggs. Is this strange that ducks come into the house to make their nests? Has anyone else had this problem? Please help.

If you move them now, she may not stay broody. If you do, it has to be in a secure area, where she can't get out--and even then she may not sit on them.
But, they only lay 1 per day, and then they don't sit until they are done laying. So, evidently you have been allowing her to do this for quite some time to be in this situation.

We have a female duck and 12 eggs and she was moved with the eggs only one hatched and the other she won't sit on

She probably likes the warmth of the house. I don't think you can do anything now, unless you don't care if the eggs hatch or not.
