Long story - but I got this chicken from someone my DH knows. I have no idea how old it is - or what it is. But I have never seen it around the nest boxes or seem at all interested in the nest boxes - so I figure it's too old to lay or too young - and I have no idea which... Any help you can give me is appreciated.

Looking at the nails on the left foot(short) and the waddles and comb (pinkish) I am goin to guess that it's young.

I'd say "splash" for color, "pullet" for gender, and "cochin" for breed.
That's my vote... Splash Cochin Pullet

It's a pullet, that's a guarantee. Splash birds usually don't get their full-on "splash" color until much later, which by this point the pink comb would be much bigger and redder if it were a boy.

Also, she MAY be a cochin, but if so, she's a poor quality one. I honestly think she's a cross, telling by her back and tail as well as the fact that it looks like she's got a pea comb, not a single comb.

Don't expect her to lay for a while if that's a single comb though. If it is indeed a pea comb, she should lay any day now.

Pullet I would say Cochin cross with maybe EE. She is lacking the total cochin look but EE would explain the other half
