    Depends. There is NO hard answer. Like most things about living things.

    Some individuals will start laying a larger egg quickly, while some can take a few months, while a few, never seem to lay a large egg, ever.

    for my wyandotte it took about two and a half weeks to come to maximum production. I'm sure it varies between hens though.
