How long does it take for an egg to hatch? The old fashion way (just by the hen sitting on them)

Even harder to believe when you see a little one day old hatchling standing on one leg so that she can scratch an itch on her head with the other, and you realize that it takes us people the best part of a year after birth to even take those first few steps!
