    From what I can tell by the photo (its difficult to see the exact color in that lighting), it looks like you have a Black Cochin pullet.

    I say pullet for now, but it's still early. Could change.

    Yes, she still appears to be a pullet. But my variety guess is changed--her feathers look blue, not black.

    She's a pretty little pullet, in my opinion. The comb is pretty small and pale, the coloring is even, and there aren't any pointed hackle or saddle feathers coming in. I think that her coloring is blue, though it is a rather dark blue color.
