    Quite a few as it turns out. Virtually anything you find at your local farm store will fit the bill.
    Rhode Island Red
    Wyandottes
    Orpingtons
    Austrolorps
    Plymouth/Barred Rocks
    Sussex

    Just to name a few. The best layer is purportedly the Leghorn but I understand that it is quite nervous and flighty.

    Take a look through this chart.
