What Do Ducks Do With Broken Eggs?

We had a mallard duck nest in our bushes. This morning we found all the eggs thrown into the yard, cracked and eaten. We watched as the mother duck hesitantly came back to the nest, took some of the broken eggs (one at a time), and flew away with them. It was so sad. Does anyone know what the ducks do with their broken eggs?

They dispose of them. The smell of the broken eggs will lead weasels, foxes and raccoons to their nesting site.

I found six broken, empty eggs in my yard this morning, but the mother mallard is sitting on her nest. When I went near her to retieve one of the broken eggs, she became very distressed. I will wait until she leaves to get that one. Would she still sit on the nest if all the eggs are gone?
