    What type of hen?

    I have a CA White X d'uccle and she lays a medium cream colored egg almost every other day... sometimes I'll get four in a week.

    I have a White Leghorn that gives me an EXTRA large white egg every other day.
    I have a Light Brown Leghorn that gives me a large white egg 3 to 4 times a week.

    I have a Cinnamon Queen that gives me a large brown egg 5 to 6 times a week.

    I have a Barred Rock that gives me a medium light brown egg 6 to 7 times a week.

    I have a RIR that gives me an EXTRA large dark brown egg 5 to 6 times a week.

    It took them about 2 months of laying to get to size.

    Probably took mine a couple of months, too; maybe a little less for the leghorns.
