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.
