    The best egg layer is the PLAIN WHITE LEGHORN.

    My Easter Eggers and Silver lace wyandotte lay almost as good as the leghorn and are friendlier.

    My friendliest chicks have been the speckled sussex. However, they only lay a medium egg.

    Hope this helps you out [​IMG]

    I would say either Black Australorps or Barred Rocks. Those are the breeds I've had best success with. Sweet, friendly, and lots of personality, plus good egg production.
