Not every avian eggs hatch in 21 days. See the chart below for incubation periods for other fowl. The duckbill platypus is the only mammal that lays eggs and they have an incubation period of 12 days. Never incubate the eggs of wild birds; these chicks will not live without their mother's care if they do hatch.
