    I would definitely check out the breed section: https://www.backyardchickens.com/products/category/chicken-breeds?590[0]=Egg+Layer&594[0]=High. I believe you can look under "Golden sex-link" or "Gold/Red Star" (which are other names for ISA browns). I have a Red sex-link and she lays very well, though the breed is only supposed to be really good layers the first 1 or 2 years (mine still lays and she is 3 years old). These birds are bred solely for eggs, some say they are aggression at times (with other breeds) but mine is the nicest in my flock. I hope you enjoy your chicken raising experience! Good luck!
