I got my first egg on Aug 28th. It was in the run up next to their house. The next day I got 2 eggs and they started using the nest box on their own! They took Sunday off, and it's been 2 eggs a day since then. These are coming from two of my Leghorn pullets. The brown eggs are from the store, to compare size. I still have two (a Leghorn and a RIR) who haven't started laying yet. They hatched on April 10th (best I can tell) so they're just shy of 5 months old. I wash my eggs right before I crack them. The ones from the nest box are nice and clean, but that first one was pretty dirty.
