    Splash or lt blue, I'm guessing pullet, depending on the exact age.

    Blue/Splash Cochin Hen. The picture is kind of dark, if you could get a better picture I bet I could tell you the color. [​IMG]

    I was thinking it might be a roo... And the other little one is too cute for words, I just never know what to call her when people ask what color she is! I am loving my fluffy birds! They are by far my favorite!

    Thanks
