Could also be a JG, but really it's a tough call until they're bigger. They will be larger than a Production Blue. They usually have a willowy cast to their shanks too. Are her legs greenish at all?

I don't really know. The yellow is clearly there all the way up the legs:

This is her photo at 3 weeks:

BTW, we don't seem to be using the same terms for breeds here.

In Welp's catalog this is a Production Blue. They have very clear red leakage.

This is their Blue Plymouth Tint:

This is their Blue Jersey Giant

And they have no photos of their Blue Plymouth Rocks but the dark head seems to be consistent with Blue Rock photos from other hatcheries.

Too many hatchery designer breeds/varieties! 🤣

It's because every hatchery has a different made up name for their different made up mixes lol!

Okay so for the likely girl, I'm thinking either Blue Rock (Which is a type of Production Blue) or Blue JG.

Jersey Giants are usually a late maturing breed, right?

Since she combed up early it would make Blue Rock more likely, I think?
