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!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
