If you want a good, hardy chicken that lays large brown eggs, good producers and easy keepers, with a good dispostion, go with the Black Sexlink. It's a cross-bred bird, specifically selected for laying. They are commonly available at any Feed & Seed type store. They will lay an egg every other day or slightly more.
If you want a dual-purpose bird (eggs and invite one to be dinner occasionally) Barred Rocks are hard to beat.
Rhode Island Reds and Leghorns tend to be kind of aggressive, which isn't good around kids.
