My blue coppers lay about 5 eggs per week. My black coppers lay 4-5. They both lay pretty large eggs once mature hens. Sometimes their egg production slows down in the extreme heat and humidity of the summers here. If you have cooler summers it might not affect you. If you have long dark winters, egg production may slow then..this is true for almost all the breeds though.
I have a golden comet and a white leghorn that lay every single day rain or shine for the last year and a half. You might like the sex links they are very sweet and have a low feed to egg ratio. They are great foragers just like the leghorns. My leghorn is very sweet because she was held all the time when she was little and raised with other friendly breeds.
My golden comet, Ducky, is always the first to come running when I am out digging or weeding in the garden. She sees the shovel or hoe and comes a running. She likes to help me dig -scratching around furiously for bugs lol. She seems to leave the plants alone though. Ducky lays a jumbo sized- fairly dark reddish brown egg. I always choose her eggs to eat with my breakfast...they just look so good :P
