Please see the response from Gabe Delgado:
According to the literature (Randall 1964) it takes 24 hours or less for a female to lay a complete egg mass.
Given that we see all size egg-masses throughout the day and it takes approximately 24 hours to extrude, it seems likely that they start laying egg-masses throughout the day and night.

Does anyone know if the Queen Conch begins laying their eggs in the morning and take all day to finish? I seem to find them about two or three in the afternoon not quite finished.
Thanks in advance,
