Ours started laying early (small eggs) at around 4-5 months but we have been told it could take as long as 8-9 months. Depends on the bird really. Also, keep in mind, egg production size could take longer. Ours started out small and are right now about a modium size and the girls are 8 months old. We were told that it could take a year or more to have large or jumbo eggs.

My Jersey Giant hen didn't start laying until she was around 30 wks. old.

Here's a pic of her! She is a splash and quite lovely I think, but I may just be partial.

Guess we were lucky but no more here either, our roo was much too loud (a foghorn without the leghorn) and he fought with our prized roo too much. There's only 1 pet hen that is allowed not to lay!!
