Who laid the funny little brown egg?

This afternoon we went down to clean the chickens out and we looked in the nest box for the eggs and we saw this multi coloured selection of eggs.

Amongst the normal range of colours of eggs was this one little olive brown egg -very strange.  We are wondering which hen laid that one.  We do have a couple of French Copper Maran hens that are coming to maturity but they are supposed to lay chocolate brown eggs.  I don’t think this girl had her pantone colour checker out when she laid this one!!  It looks more like it came out of the other end!!  Oh well – I shall put it on the rack and I’m sure when I crack it open it will be the same colour inside!!
