All in the same long would I have to cook them for?

The number of eggs in the pan shouldn't make any difference other than there will be less water so it will take less time to boil.

I cook mine for 3m30sec. But they are from our own hens, so have quite thin shells (we don't give them extra grit). Bought eggs could take longer.

If eggs are stored at room temperature then 3 minutes but only start the timer when the water has come back up to a decent boil after adding the eggs. If stored in fridge (outrageous!) add 30 secs maybe but again after the water has come back to the boil.

Into boiling water from room temp and 4min 30 here.

We still have runny yolks. Some of these times are very short.
