    First time incubating and I don't have a clue how long it takes to hatch. I was given 18 easter eggs [​IMG] and stold 2 from my white leghorns moms and baredrock dad. So do eggs usually take about the same time or do some breeds take longer? [​IMG] thanks for any help

    Chicken eggs take approximately 21 days. This can vary due to environmental conditions such as temperature and embryo development.

    Quote:21 days! They could start pipping on day 20 but usually right on schedule 21 days and can last to day 23....from my experience! [​IMG]
