    How long does it take for a egg laying chicken to lay her egg?

    I depends, some chickens lay their eggs in a few minutes ( after creating their egg inside) others take an hour. I had one Easter Egger called Pine who would occasionally lay an extra large egg (usually a double yolker), once I found her walking around the yard without the other hens which was weird, so I followed her and after 30 minutes she layed an extra large egg!
