How many chickens ought I have to serve my guests?
We have a lodge with 12 cottages with kitchens. We want our guests to have fresh chicken eggs—as many as they want.
It seems that, on average, the two guests in each of our eight one bedroom cottages request four eggs each day; and the four to five guests in our two bedroom cottages request seven eggs each day. Eggs not distributed one day can be distributed the next. Our occupancy rate during peak season is 70%. Chickens generally lay an egg every day and a half. How many chickens ought we have?
