We have 2  Hamburgs and they lay a medium sized white egg almost everyday.  They are small birds, but their personality totally sucks!

2B (Broodys) + E (eggs)+ BE (Bator Eggs) = P (peeps) X HO (hatchery order)= SNEP (still not enough peeps) No matter what the scipher method you use it always comes up short.

Polish lay white, but I have found they are not real consistent. My red production girls are right as rain....but they are brown.

Have heard that Leghorns aren't friendly at all.  Don't know if that's true or not.

I have Anconas.  They lay a medium white egg nearly everyday.  They are a smallish chicken like my brown leghorn, which also lays a white egg a day.  The leghorn's egg is a bit bigger.

The leghorns I've had are not mean, but they're not friendly and can be a bit skittish.
