I was told it was a rhode rock?
Looks like a Black Sex-Link to me. Black Sex-Links are also called Black Stars. They are crosses of Rhode Island Red roosters and Barred Plymouth Rock hens.
Ahh lovely. I've got 3 of these and I wS told the other 2 were black stars. The one in the pic is laying brown eggs, but one of the younger ones is laying a really pale brown egg? Is it possible it's hers or likely to be another hen. I can't work out if it's the black star or light sussex???
Different birds, even if they are from the same breed, lay different eggs. It could be another hen, but it could also be the younger hen's egg.
Yes, definitely looks like a Black Sex-Link hen. Egg shell color can vary even in individual birds within a breed, so the light brown egg could be coming from one of your younger birds. Or, it may be the Light Sussex's egg; you won't really know for sure unless you see each bird in a nest box.
