    I have 12 Isa Brown chickens or whatever the equivalent. 11 of them look like the hen above but one of them looks like the hen above that.
    I think that one may be a different breed but I'm pretty sure they all came in the same batch and were sold being the same breed. It goes broody all the time which is really annoying.

    Is it a different breed and if so what breed?

    I would say it's the same breed just got a little darker on its neck which in that breeds case the darker color is on there backs and then she just ended up then with the light color on its back but the broody thing does maybe lead it to another breed could it be that she could be a mixed breed where did u get them from

    Im pretty sure i got them from a local hatchery. She is a lot shinier and has smoother feathers all over than all the others...

    Ok well just because her feathers are smoother than the others don't mean she is a different breed so her egg color different then the others
