What's the best bird for free range & great egglaying ( not a mix or mutt )

I would very highly suggest the black sex link. They are a very pretty, and friendly chicken. They are very active and are a fantastic free-ranging bird.

They lay EXTRA large brown eggs. I would also suggest the red sex link and the Buff Orprington. Both very friendly, good egg laying chickens, and are good free ranging birds.

 

Also RIR's (Rhode Island red) are a great egg laying breed of chicken, and aren't quite as active as the black sex link but still make a great free ranging chicken.

 

This is my RIR. Very friendly girl. Her name is Candy.             |    This is one of my black sex links, Sunset. She's a big sweetheart.
