    I don't have them but bantam leghorns will probably lay really well.
    I have a Silkie who lays about 5 eggs a week, and that is exellent for a silkie, but she might have some mixed blood on her.
    I would recommend to try to stay away from silkies and Cochins tho if you just want the egg and no chicks, because silkies and Cochins are the queens of brooding!
