Re: Best chickens for egg laying?

Is egg production the only trait you are interested in? Some breeds are more docile than others, so if you want pets that you can interact with, you should consider that. Some are flighty, so unless you're going to keep them in a covered pen, that's something to think about as well. We ordered from Meyers most recently and they give a description of the different breeds that includes temperament, how many eggs they lay a week, whether they are flighty, size of hens, color of eggs, etc.
