I heard Old English Game bantams lay pretty decent eggs for their size. They are small birds so you can keep more than 3 or so, depends on the area you have.

doesn't really matter...the addiciton will set in and you will have more birds than you planned on anyways and thus more eggs!

leghorns are small and lay ok sized eggs, Most bantams are under 2 pounds, so they are all pretty small, and some are quieter than others.

Favorelles, EEs,Orpingtons,Cochins,Barred Rock all lay fair sized eggs
