How many days from a chicken hatching to slaughter?
Technically, it is better to eat all beef, fowl, fish and other "recently killed" meat as close as possible to the last time it was alive. As soon as an animal dies, the proce…ss of putrefaction (the decomposition of organic matter, especially protein, by microorganisms, resulting in production of foul-smelling matter) begins. Depending on refrigeration and general hygiene on the part of people who handle the meat, the first couple of days may yield small enough quantities of microbes that there's no danger. The next couple of days (again, depending on storage) will result in more breakdown which may slightly effect flavor but shouldn't be dangerous if the food is fully cooked. When you get up to a week without freezing, pickling, smoking or other methods of preservation, you're going to start getting into dangerous areas.
It takes about 21 days (3 weeks) for a chicken egg to hatch. 21 days exactly when they started incubating.
They can hatch several a day. It is 21-23 days to hatch. A chicken will lay one egg a day.
Yes, The broody hen often takes a week to gather enough eggs to actually start brooding. Temperature and humidity play a big role in artificial incubation also so the 21 day h…atch is arbitrary. I have had chicks emerge up to three days after and often keep the eggs incubating for 25 days total. (at that point I discard them as the late chicks will often be killed by the older first hatched birds) Candle late hatch eggs to look for movement. A day or two makes little difference but after 5/6 days the eggs are not viable anyway.
Sounds like a late hatch. Most chicks hatch at or around 21 days but there are reasons they may hatch at 23 days. I just had two hatch from a clutch of eggs on day 24 …and they are Araucana's.
21 days 21 days
It takes 21 days to incubate the egg. the 21st day is the hatching day. if the eggs are mail order don't count the day the eggs arrive if the temperature is below 55 degrees f…. on the 21st day the eggs will hatch at all different times.
apox. 28 to 30 days
1 week, but make sure you store it pointy side down, after 1 week the chances of it hatching is extremely low
21 days, whether under a hen or in an incubator. For a more complete answer, see the question and answer "How long does it take for eggs to hatch when a chicken is sitti…ng on them"?
it takes 21 day for a chicken to hatch
About a week. I have 17 chickens.
In 2008, 9.08 billion chickens were slaughtered in the United States.
