A rooster mating with a hen will not have any effect on the colour of eggs she lays, it will only affect the colour of eggs a daughter hatched from her eggs will lay. If your jubilee Orpington is laying green eggs then I would guess she is not a pure jubilee Orpington, or another hen is laying the green eggs you are finding . If your Marans are pure then they will lay dark brown eggs.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
