    I am fairly new to chickens and I was just thinking of egg production when I got my hens. They are beautiful and I love everyone of them but are there any "fancy" chickens that are still good egg producers?

    Not really. Some lines of Polish can be good producers. Though probably not considered fancy, Fayoumi are good producers. Since fancy poultry are bred to be fancy, that is done at the expense of productivity.
