Pretty good presentation. hens are like our females . They are born with every egg they will lay during their life cycle. Many are unaware that given proper care & nutrients, they have a longevity of over ten years. I had at various times two big time show winners I made pets. Both lived about 14 years. The hen (Granny) was turned free after laying season & copped after the molt. The rooster (Granpaw) was freed during the molt as he had no masculine interests & cooped the rest of the year. All my birds get mold free stale fruit, chopped raw veggies, rotten seasonal melons & bad bananas as opportunity permits.
