https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks. This link has lots of useful info on hatching and raising chicks. It has info on broody hens and incubators. With you asking how long mum will sit for I presume your using a hen? If you are she does all the work for you. Chicken eggs take approx 21 days to hatch give or take. Sometimes it's a little early or little later than the 21 days. If mum is hatching them you won't need heat lamps or lights she will brood the chicks by getting them underneath her she will also show them how to feed and water themselves. Hope this helps and good luck with your hatching :frow
