    My female Pekin Wilma lays everyday. When she is at my in laws for the weekend if we go somewhere then she sometimes will skip a day.

    When managed properly (feed restriction when developing), a Pekin should lay close to 200 eggs per year.

    They are listed as 125-225 eggs per year.

    It's going to depend upon what strain of Pekin you have. There are strains of Pekin that have been selectively bred to be productive layers. You'd get more eggs if you happen to have that line of Pekin.
