    Check this website: http://www.ithaca.edu/staff/jhenderson/chooks/chooks.html

    It has a lot of general information about breeds and has a column with amount of eggs layed per week and their size. According to the chart, it looks like Leghorns, RIR, Welsumers,Plymouth Rocks, Orpingtons,Wyandottes and quite a few others. I found this site very informative when I was picking out my breeds and I still refer back to it.

    I hope this helps.
