    Wondering what everyone's opinions are for the best white egg layer.
    No Leghorns preferably.
    Cold hardy is a must as I am in North Dakota.
    I know that a lot of White Egg Layers are Mediterranean breeds but hoping that there is something other then a Leghorn that lays a lot... Or close to 200+ eggs a year

    Check Henderson's Chicken Chart for ideas. I don't have a clue... Mary

    Not sure on how hardy they are with cold weather but other white egg layers would be: Campines, Sicilian Buttercups, Hollands, Minorcas, Polish, and Sultans. I'm sure there are still more breeds that you can look into that lay white eggs. Good luck with finding the right birds!
