A hen who only lays every other day then takes a 6 month break produces 91.3125 eggs per year, less when that hen fails to lay while she is going broody, is broody, or she is recovering from her broodiness. But said hen still eats 365.25 days per year. The money spent is your money, and so are the eggs your hens give you. The total egg production for such a hen is therefor reduced to about 80 eggs per year. So we are now back to the number of eggs a hen was expected to lay at the time of the Civil War, 80 eggs.
Unfortunately all hens of this type will go on vacation at the same time of year, (Fall and Winter) so you will also be largely eggless for 6 months at a time.
I can get you some American Game eggs but before you order remember that they on average will lay fewer than 80 eggs, on average maybe 4 dozen eggs and sometimes fewer eggs per year.
This is one of the reasons that your Great Grand-mother nagged your Great Grand-daddy until he auctioned off the farm, sold the family horse to the glue factory, and moved your ancestors to the city where they found: a steady payday, running water, electricity, paved streets, grocery stores, better health care, steam heat, and a higher standard of living than what was available to farm families 100 to 150 years ago.
