I reckon about 30 minutes if you want to dip toast fingers in and an hour if you want the hard boiled option  :D

Right, now we're doing both I reckon 50 minutes for soft and nearly an hour and a half for hard.  I've set this question to my daughter and her husband this evening, (one's a fully trained pastry chef and the other is the head chef at a golf course.)  They should have some idea.

72 minutes for soft boiled & 126 for hard boiled. Dont know why but I have an idea that an ostrich egg is 18 times bigger than a hens egg so 4 minutes x 18 = 72 & 18 x 7  :D

Thank you for having fun with that.   Those who said soft boiled =  approx  50 minutes.     Hardboiled a massive one and a half to 2 hours.       Well Done,    do you want another one some time  ?    Mrs B
