    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    I love buff orps. They are affectionate, lap hogs, friendly, great layers, cold hardy, docile and curious.

    Generally the largest eggs are not laid by a breed but by Black and Red Sex Links which are hybrids. They often lay eggs that either have really large yolks or are sometimes even double yoked. Of the standard breeds, White Leghorns and Barnevelders typically lay the largest eggs. It's an interesting phenomena that three of these four (BSLs, RSLs, & WLs) are also have the best lay rates of all chickens. The genetics are involved in them laying lots of eggs are also a factor in the size of their eggs.

    There is no best chicken. It all depends on what you are wanting in a chicken. However if egg production is your main priority, those three, along with Red Sex Links, are the best layers in the chicken world.
