Cool to hear from a real live chicken rancher, part-time / amatuer though you may be. The only animals I can raise successfully are cockroaches.

But, ..., we/you haven't exactly answered the OP's underlying question.

Given a healthy female chicken in her prime reproductive years and an adequate supply of roostering, how many eggs can she reasonably create in a year and how many will hatch into viable chicks? 50? 100? 200? 400?

Enquiring clueless suburbanite minds want to know.
