    I'd really want a breed that lays a egg a day or more if possible something like Rhode Island Reds not them or golden comets or black sex link

    Leghorns (but they do fly).

    Black Australorps are good layers but I would not say they are an egg a day like the Leghorns- see McMurray's chick selector:

    There was a hatchery selling AustraWhites (black Australorps and Leghorn crosses)- I think it was Cackle Hatchery??
