    What chicken lays dark brown eggs, but not as dark as welsummers, barnevelders, or marans?

    Red and Black SexLinks lay a nice medium brown egg. So do Orpingtons, Australorps, Brahmas, Chanteclers, Delawares, Dominiques, Jersey Giants, Langshans, New Hampshires, Barred Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Wyandottes, etc.

    If you are looking for a bird that fits your needs specifically with temperament, egg color, size, etc... here is a good chart to consult:
