    Okay. This is the third of four chickens our friend got.
    She got them 5 weeks ago when they were chicks.
    Is she a blue orpington? what is she/he?
    Thanks a lot!

    Her feet aren't green... could she still be an EE?
    And her comb is single, not pea.
    I thought she was an orpington.

    She looked kinda like the blue orpingtons on feathersite.com

    The tufting on the sides of her face doesn't look like normal pure orpington characteristic to me. It looks like more than usual, which would correlate with EE. But, I could be wrong. I am no expert.

    Definitely not an orpington, as they have white skin (not yellow like the underfoot on the bird pictured).

    I would agree an EE pullet. EEs are a cross of birds that can lay any colored eggs (altho the typical focus is on tinted eggs). Based on her muffs, she is in that category. EEs can also have any type of comb, any color plumage and any color legs. No standard to them since they are the combination of 2 breeds. I cannot see her comb, but since you say it is single, she will most likely lay brown eggs.
