    She looks like she could be a Black Copper Marans, though they usually lay dark brown eggs.

    x2.
    Lately, breeders have bred Marans from a poor gene pool, and they don't always lay super dark brown eggs like they used to.

    That egg is definitely too light for a pure Marans' egg. She has some other breed mixed into her ancestry.
