I think it depends on a few things. Location, current trend, and availability will affect what is most common that year.

Here it is pretty consistent to see
Buff orpingtons
Australorp
Leghorns
And while not a breed
Sex links
Easter eggers

Leghorns, CornishX (not a breed, but oh so common), Golden Sex Link (again, not a breed, but oh so common) RI/NH Reds, Brahma, Orps, Silkies, Wyandottes. and the EEs (again, not a breed, but oh so common, with help from the farm store and the recent surge in home hen ownership).
