Sry this has been over looke/missed
From the last egg laid to hatching , generally around 21/22 days but this varies as to the pair weather etc...
We no longer bother to count, just leave them to it and either end up with a nest of chicks or the hen has buried and abanonded the eggs..usually after a good 4 weeks.
If they are left to it, have had a consistant varied healthy diet in the months leading up to nesting....including calcuim phosphorus and protein citric acid etc, and left to it chicks will will be on the cards.
We consider over an 80% eggs to healthy adult birds, one is doing well.
