I've never heard of a "Sapphire." I think it's a mixed breed, or possibly a rare/new breed that I am unaware of.
Looks like a pullet. How old?
Yes, I forgot to add, that is a pullet
Sapphires are usually Legbar/Leghorn crosses. And that one is a pullet.
But are those not little Spurs trying to come out?
All chickens have spur buds.
Sapphires are an offshoot of the Super Blue Egg Layer thing---just a name a clever person made up. Usually a Legbar/Leghorn mix, so you get the production and egg size of the Leghorn, but in a nice pale blue from the Legbar.
Lots of breeds get spur buds on females. The comb, thin legs, overall look and feathering make me say pullet.
pullet - kind of a downer I thought sapphires would be "blue" chickens.
