According to Incubators and hatching Pokémon Eggs:

Each Egg displays the number of kilometers you must walk for the Egg to hatch. In general, the more kilometers required, the rarer the Pokémon that will hatch. A notification will appear when the Egg has hatched.

What are the common distances? I just found my first egg and it requires 5 km to hatch. I'm curious as to how rare that is.

Bonus Questions:

  • How rare is it to get an egg from PokéStops?
  • What Pokémon can you get from eggs?
  • The second bonus question is well covered below. For the first, I've found it quite common to get new eggs from PokéStops shortly after previous eggs hatch. As a data point, I've hatched 123 so far, have four more currently. – CarlRJ Aug 2 '16 at 22:43

Eggs come in three distances: 2km (1.2mi), 5km (3.1mi), and 10km (6.2mi). The distribution of these seems to be relatively random, however 5km seems to be somewhat more common than the others. 10km seems to be somewhat rarer for now, however these numbers have become extremely balanced since the beta.

Pokemon's strength (and rarity) is usually determined by the distance you need to walk to hatch the Egg.

You can get any non-legendary (and egg-grouped Pokemon) from eggs, although some are rarer than others. For instance, you're much more likely to get a Rattata than a Growlithe from an egg.

    How does the app qualify the walking? Does the app need to be open and the device unlocked for it to register? – David Yell Jul 7 '16 at 18:23
  • @DavidYell yes. You can turn on Battery Saver and hold the phone upside down to black out the screen, but the app must still be running. – SPavel Jul 8 '16 at 15:14
  • I've heard that there are also 20km eggs, but I have yet to see one with my own eyes. – Doktor J Jul 12 '16 at 17:33
  • I have not seen any of those 7km eggs yet, and haven't heard of them from anywhere else. That seems incorrect. – Arperum Jul 12 '16 at 19:11

    And for 10km eggs sometimes you get low CP Onix's three times in a row, but never a Snorlax. Darn you Random Number Generator! – CarlRJ Aug 2 '16 at 22:38
