    She or He?
    Her wattles haven't change in the last 2-3 weeks... her neck seems to get a little darker than the rest of her body though...
    And we were told she was a Blue Cochin, but she seems like a really dark Blue Cochin, or very light Black... What do you guys think?

    She looks like a pullet to me if she is a bantam.

    With blue genetics, breeders get from the same pairing: blue, black, and splash. Based on the coloring I see on my computer, I would say she is a blue.

    She's definitely a blue pullet. [​IMG]

    Yes, she's a blue. Really dark blue (shading more towards black) is very desirable.
