Generally speaking, bantams are better than large fowl at coping with heat (less surface area, not as much weight to move about). Heavily feathered birds will struggle to keep cool.

Something like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naked_Neck

You can get those large fowl and bantam as far as I know, and I know they are better at dealing with high heat than most chickens.
