    I'd put Leghorns at the top of the list. After that any of the sex links.

    X 2, Any of the commercial production layers, #1 White Leghorns with white eggs and # 2 the red sex links with brown eggs. The broodiness has pretty much been bred out of them, especially the leghorns, and they forage quite well.
