    Basically any "large" egg layer, such as Jersey Giants, Rocks, RI Reds, RI Whites, New Hampshires, etc.

    French Marans, such as the Black Copper Marans, lay some very big eggs too!

    I have a trio of old White Leghorns who constantly lay eggs that are 75g+.
    I don't know if Leghorns are among the biggest egg layers but I do know they are among the biggest relative to their size.
    Hope that helps you a bit...
