    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join to our flock. Here are a few suggestions based on your criteria. Black Sex Links--for lots of jumbo eggs (with double yolks not being uncommon), Easter Eggers for a variety of egg colors (blue, olive, green, beige, and perhaps even a pale pink or gold egg), and Welsummers, Marans, or Barnevelders for chocolate eggs (in my personal opinion the prettiest eggs in the chicken world). Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Whatever breeds you decide to get, good luck with your flock.
