    What breed of chicken would you consider the best egg-layer in your flock? I only have 4 chickens laying and so far our barred rock is the best! Some of our other pullets will be laying soon.

    My leghorn and ancona lay very well. My EE lays a pretty green egg almost every day.

    I keep a flock of red sex links just for egg production, aside from them I love barred rocks they seem to be very consistent.
