My black sex link is awesome.

I also had a Cinnamon Queen that gave me 6 eggs almost every week!

My giant cochins are the most doscile . They lay large brown eggs as well. Mine have gone broody but both my hens have hatched out their eggs and are now back to laying.

ISA Browns Fit the bill. Ours never go broody. They are so docile we have a hard time hearding them back into the pen at night after a day of free ranging. But this is only the first few days, then they behave.

The only problem I see is that you only want 4 eggs a week. The ISA Browns will lay a lot more than that................
