    6.3 weeks old - I'm leaning towards pullet... but I'm still learning to determine coloring... help? The colors in the photos are pretty darn close to true-life. The feathers are not a solid black - she almost looks like she is sun-faded.

    Dark blue and very pretty. I'd like to see the lacing as she matures.
