If you want to let your flock free range and you want good egg production I always liked Brown Leghorns. I love their color, which also provides camouflage. They're flighty but not unfriendly. Quick enough to run or fly from danger. The rooster I kept was very gentle. Best I remember they would eat treats out of my hand. I really liked the ones I had and they came from a hatchery. The only drawback is they have huge combs and wattles. Even the hens have big combs. Frostbite is not a concern for me since I live in the south.

We might get leghorns. My sister (3) was wanting a white chicken so one may be on our chick shopping list in April.
