Games aren't great layers. Old English, perhaps 120 per year. Modern perhaps 100 a year. If you want more eggs, all you can do is pay close attention to nutrition. Good balanced feed and sufficient protein to stimulate ovulation. Then lighting matters. Otherwise, select your best layers for breeding.

If you're looking for egg production, you'll also want to keep a close eye on them going broody. They have a high tendency to brood, and that cuts out egg production for a good few weeks. They do make good mommas as a rule if you want to hatch out chicks.

X2, but they are curious birds and have tons of personality if you're looking for pets.
