    How long does it take for an egg to hatch? I would like to know before this spring when I let my girls have a boyfriend.[​IMG] Any help would be great.

    It takes 21 days from the time incubation starts. Just b/c an egg is laid doesn't mean it will develop...it never will unless your hen goes broody and sits on it or you stick it in an incubator.
