Q

How long does a mother hummingbird sit on the eggs?  How long will it be until they leave the nest after they hatch?

                                   - Brian

A Dear Brian,

It takes about 13-22 days for the eggs to hatch. (It takes longer for some species than for others.)  The young birds leave the nest in 19-29 days. (This also depends on the species.)
