    Is that the only picture you have? it is really hard to tell much of anything from it [​IMG]

    Can you try for a good profile shot? Also a good head shot...what color earlobes does she have? From that stance, it is hard to tell how her body is built. I would guess blue andalusian, but again, can't tell much from that pic. in other words, need more pics!!! [​IMG]

    She looks hefty to be an andalusian, and blue is such a popular color these days she could really be anything. Blue makes it hard to find other breed traits, as well.

    What color eggs does she lay? If I had to guess I'd say she may be a blue Marans. She'd lay a dark brown egg if that's the case.

    Almost every breed now can become blue so it's hard to tell.

    I wouldn't say wayandotte simply for the huge single comb...blue orp? Again, a body shot of the bird standing naturally would really help

    I mean, I know wyandottes can come with single combs, but that one is quite large, and my single combed wyandottes did not have combs that large.
