As far as I know. There is no such living thing (animal) as a Tasmanian wolf. The nearest thing was the Tasmanian Tiger (Phylocene) and it is reputed to be extinct. It was a marsupial which means it gave birth to young not eggs.

How long does it take the Tasmanian tiger eggs to hatch?

The Tasmanian tiger, more correctly known as the Thylacine was a marsupial. It did not lay eggs.The Tasmanian tiger snake also does not lay eggs. The female stores the male's sperm in her oviduct, within her body, and fertilises them at the beginning of spring. She then gives birth to live young.

They are not related. They are both mammals, and that is where the similarity ends. Thylacines (the correct name for Tasmanian wolves) were marsupials. They are now extinct.

Tasmanian devils are mammals; therefore, they give birth to live young. The Tasmanian devil is a marsupial so, like most (not all) marsupials, it has a pouch to protect its joeys while they are developing. The young joeys are born extremely undeveloped and must compete for a teat in the pouch. Tasmanian devils can actually give birth to up to 20 joeys at a time, but having only four teats, this means most of the young die.

No, notwithstanding the fact that the Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger) is believed to be extinct. Only the female could bear young. Although the male did have a pouch, it was only to protect his reproductive parts.

How do Tasmanian devils give birth to young?

Tasmanian Devils give birth to live young, which are born about the size of a bean. These tiny creatures move by instinct to crawl into the mother Tasmanian Devil's pouch, where they latch onto a teat. The teat swells in their mouth, and there they stay, firmly anchored, until they are ready to start leaving the pouch for short periods of time.
