    Can someone tell what kind of hen this lovely girl is? I have one hen that lays a large dark brown/chocolate egg and I'm pretty sure it's this girl. She was my "mystery chick" added to my order, so no idea what she is. I've tried looking at pictures to compare, but I'm not seeing any that look just like her. She didn't want to hold still for pics, sorry!

    Thanks! I thought they layed light brown eggs, so I wasn't sure. She is lighter than most of the pics I've seen, but maybe she'll darken with age?

    I wouldn't think so.
