looking for suggestion for a good winter laying breed of hen

I would like to have more eggs to eat in winter and a breed (Not a Hybrid) that is a good winter layer would be a great addition to the flock.I would love to hear some suggestions.

White leghorn is your best bet, but most hens will slow down or stop in their second winter, consider artificial light

Wellsummer or Croad langshan is your best bet.
