Hen hatching eggs, how long does it take?

We have our first broody hen, sitting on eggs in the coop. We figure there are probably about 10 eggs or so, can't get close enough to check without her going crazy.
We are going to let her hatch out the eggs.

How long will it take for the eggs to hatch? We think she has been on the eggs for about 4 days now.

She is a cuckoo maran, but we're pretty sure there are some eggs from our other hens in the mix, RR, SLW, Speckled Sussux. Oh and our rooster is a bantam Cochin. Should be an interesting outcome.

Not sure if this is the right area to post, so please move if needed.
