    I have a mille fleur bantam hen that is sitting on 7 eggs i wanted to know if they would hatch befor 21 days or not ,and I was wondering if 7 eggs is to much for her. They are her eggs.

    You should be fine with 7 under her but to answer your first question yes it'll take 21 days

    20-22 depending on how often she gets up.
