Egg production between different chicken breeds can vary quite a bit. Our best layers are:
- White Leghorns – these lay white eggs. Being a smaller, lighter breed, they tend to lay well through the warmer months.
- ISA Browns – these are one of the most popular brown egg layers. They are known by several names, including Red Star, Red Comet and Red Sex Links. If you’re looking for the best egg laying rates for brown eggs, these would be a top choice.
- Black Sex Links – these are brown egg layers. In my opinion, they aren’t as productive as the ISA Browns, but they’re still a good layer.
- Black Australorps – of the standard breeds, these are one of our best brown egg layers.
