It is possible that she could be part Bluebell.

I've posted her photo on other sites and so far we've had guesses of  Blue Orpington, Blue Marans, Brahma and Cochin. She has lightly feathered feet so for sure she's one of the last 3 mentioned. People's opinions seem to vary quite a bit and I'm curious as to how they made their decisions (colour, comb. feet, body type, egg colour, etc)

Orpingtons and Marans have white/pink skin, which tends to be dominate, so I'm thinking neither of those. 

Brahmas have pea combs, which are dominant, so no Brahma.

She's not pure Cochin, she's not fluffy and rounded enough, but she could have some Cochin ancestry. That would account for the straight comb, lightly feathered legs (incompletely dominant) and yellow skin.

Donrae - I think you are right. I asked the previous owners if they had any Marans, Brahma or Cochin. They had a large mixed flock and the only one of those breeds they had were Black Cochins.
