Possible Isbar/Black Cooper Maran mix?

Hello. I purchased this gal as an olive egger but she lays a darker brown which I know is a possibility. I’m curious what she might be because she has some black to her comb and that seems odd to me. That little speck in her comb is from a rooster not fowl pox. The lady I got her from thought she was from her Isbar hen and BCM Roo (those might be switched but I think that’s it) she has dark black/gray legs. A few little feathers on her feet. And has some iridescent green too. She’s also pretty small compared to most of my pullets. Any thoughts?
The darker brown egg in the picture is hers, it was darker when she first started laying.

I’m not super familiar with isbar but they seem to lay eggs that are light and would probably affect the egg colour. BCM lay dark eggs and she does seem to have a relatively dark coloured egg so maybe it’s lighter because she’s a mix.

This is Bug, my BCMxIsbar girl. She's an absolute monster in size, but I'm pretty sure she lays a similarly colored egg. (Which is horribly disappointing!) I set up a camera in the coop to see for sure to catch her in the act tomorrow morning, but I'm almost positive she's my new layer... so yes, BCM x isbar is an entirely possible mix for your girl. :)

Not sure about the black skin though 🤔

Thank you!
The black on the comb is what’s weird. I’m not sure if it’s something wrong or if she’s just like that.
