    Any where from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. Although with the first egg it seems like forever. Good Luck

    My RIR has been squatting for over 2 weeks. My SS is also squatting for a week and has been singing the egg song twice a day over and over for the last 3 days and I still don't have an egg! There is no where for them to hide any eggs and I don't free range now until evening before the sun sets. My RIR is almost 23 weeks old and the SS is almost 21 weeks old.
