    Hi, I am wondering other than Leghorns which breed lays the most white eggs.

    My Silver Spangled Hamburgs are pretty good layers.

    Anyone else?

    Do you mean out of the pure breeds?
    If so I gather the Minorca is a good layer of large white eggs. Or maybe an Ancona?

    If you aren't particular about the birds being purebred then there are many commercial hybrids which will give very good egg numbers. The egg numbers for these could probably be found on an internet search.
