While all hens produce eggs, it is important to look at specific characteristics when you are focusing on egg laying. When looking for an egg laying flock, you want chickens with high production rates that are also hardy and non-aggressive. It is important to consider the climate your chickens will live in, whether you have a coop or your chickens are free-range, how close your chickens will be to each other and whether they will be interacting with other species of chickens when you are selecting hens.
