    I live in texas and I've never had to wait for eggs to hatch, I just went down to the local feed store and always bought my chicks but I have a game hen and she's about to hatch me some chicks and I just need to know how long does it take to hatch eggs? she's been sitting on her eggs about 2 and a half weeks.

    21 days is what I have been told. I have a broody sitting on some right now that should start hatching tomorrow. I can hardly wait.

    Mine only took 19 days to hatch. I think it may depends on the breed. Not sure though!
    My 3 chicks are 1 week old and soooooooooo cute [​IMG]
    Good luck for both of you. [​IMG]
