By great temperament, do you mean a hen that won't run away from you, will allow you to pick her up, or what? All breeds of chickens will slow down with laying eggs as they get older.
There are individual differences, but there are general traits that can be found in a breed of chicken.
For brown eggs, you should look at Black Australorp and Rhode Island Red. Both of these breeds will lay an average of 5 eggs a week in the first year.
For white eggs, you should look at the Leghorn. I like the brown varieties, and this is a better color for free ranging because they can avoid predators better. Leghorns can also fly short distances to avoid predators. Leghorns will lay an average of about 6 eggs a week in the first year.
