Four days.

Actually it takes 21 days. Each chicken takes 21 days to lay an egg, so it takes 21 chickens to get 21 eggs. It also takes 14 chickens to lay 14 eggs in 21 days. Reasoning (mistakenly) that if it takes 21 hens 21 days to lay 21 eggs then it must take 14 hens 14 days to lay 14 eggs, eventually leads to 1 hen laying 1 egg in 1 day. If that were the case, then it would only take that 1 hen to lay 21 eggs in 21 days--but we know it takes 21 hens to lay that amount in 21 days.

Chocolate chickens don't lay eggs.

Well that all depends on how many eggs that chicken can lay in a day. There isn't enough information.
