    I don't think any chicken can compete with the white leghorn. . But they lay pretty well

    All Leghorns lay well, but the whites are the best. Leghorns can be found in white, single comb light brown, single comb dark brown, rose comb light brown, exchequer, buff, red, silver, black, and mille fleur,
