It is hard to judge your bird from this photo/angle. A side profile showing her whole body would be best. However, from what I can see (and I'm not a poultry judge, only a poultry exhibitor/breeder/fancier), she appears to be rather narrow especially into the tail area. Her comb should have five points on it and I would like to see a bolder head. She appears to be a hatchery-quality Australorp, which are not produced for showing but instead for egg production. These observations could change if I could see her whole body from the side.

Always happy to answer questions! You can ask me about diseases, raising chicks, feeding, and breeds!
