    Not sure if she's laying or not, but now there is a darker brown egg in the nest boxes in the morning
    I'm not sure who's laying it: barred rock, EE's, golden buffs or this one, I was told partridge rock
    None of the other eggs I find are very dark or shaped the way this one is, the rest are light brown or pinky

    I think partridge rocks are supposed to have yellow feet/legs. Her coloring looks correct though.

    Could be, can't really tell by the picture. Rocks are supposed to have yellow feet, but maybe she is a hatchery fowl. Scroll down and you will see a partridge Rock. I can't really tell by your picture if she has a similar feather pattern. Also, does the hen pictured have a single comb, Rocks have single combs. http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGP/Rocks/BRKRocks.html

    No it is not a P rock, looks like a mix of RIR and something else, the color of the feathers have no bearing on the color of the eggs if that was where you were headed.

    I was thinking that she possibly could be a wellsummer mix or barnevelder mixed in there. She hadn't started laying yet then the darker eggs showed up. So I kinda wondered if she really was a partridge rock.

    Her comb & wattles don't look developed enough for her to be your mystery layer. What type of comb does she have? Is it a straight comb like your barred rock?

    I would guess a cross. Could have about any dark red blood in her. With my mixed Chickens red and black are in about 75%, the rest are white, golden/buff, and mixed up colors.
