Hi! I bought her as a pullet (the other one in the picture is a Buff Orpington). The people who sold her to me had recently bought her off of someone else and they were told that she is a Marans. I've looked at Marans varieties and they only that seems to come close to is the Wheaten Marans. But I might be wrong. The eggs are not of the chocolate brown type. They are brown, often with a lighter shade around the center of the egg and sometimes with a few darker specks on the bottom. She gets scared very easily and whenever I walk into the coop and she is sitting on the laying nest, she jumps off it.

Is it a Marans?

Looks like a commercial brown layer to me.
Certainly not Wheaten Marans.
