    i just got this hen 2 days ago, she is 6-7 mos old. Owner didn't want her because she didn't match the rest of her flock. I've been trying to figure her breed out and the closest I could come up with was a black copper marins. If she is, she must be mixed with something else. She lays very light colored brown eggs. Thoughts?

    Not a Maran, probably a black sex link.

    Wonderful! You're awesome. That makes complete sense. The previous owner has a flock of barred rocks and their neighbor has a mix of breeds, but I did notice a Rhode Island Red roo!
