WHY DO CHICKENS AND BIRDS LAY FEW EGGS COMPARED TO TURTLES AND FISHES WHO LAY EGGS IN NUMEROUS QUANTITIES?

I was STUMPED! Never was I this stumped and mind-boggled when confronted by my 10-year old girl last week who, having much faith and confidence in her daddy, approached me with her school homework. Then I forgot, this is what the education is in my country, gulp*. The text book was of no help either! A bad thought surfaced out of frustration - reply with a question - WHY DO HUMANOID FEMALE GIVE BIRTH ONCE, OR TWICE, MAX, IN A YEAR? Blast!!
