    I've had dozens of breeds over the years including Black Australorps (my favorite standard breed) and Light Brahmas (the first breed I ever had). The Brahmas actually tend to lay rather small eggs for their size, and while the Australorps lay large eggs there are breeds that lay larger eggs. The largest eggs that I've consistently had from any of my hens have been those of my Black Sex Links. Their eggs tend to be huge, with double yolks not being uncommon. They have also been my best layers as well, consistently churning out more than 300 eggs per hen per year.
