    Just wondering what breed of chicken lays the biggest eggs? Or what breed do you consider the best egg layers?

    Best egg layers - Your run of the mill Australorps and Sex Links.

    Biggest egg layers - Some strains of Black Copper Marans, White Leghorns, to name a couple.

    I've never seen anything that can out lay a White Leghorn.

    For brown eggs I'd go with a sex-link of some sort unless you're wanting to hatch your own. Then one of the dual-purpose breeds.
