Hello there,

In humans, folliculogenesis happens within the development of the fetus and as a baby and so, the possible number of Ovum that a woman will ever create is already defined at birth. Does the same happens to chicken? Does the number of eggs that a chicken will lay is already limited at birth?

Thanks and, as English is not my mother language, I’m sorry for any mistake.

yes it does. see
