    It would be better if you didn't hijack someone else' thread. . Anyways she looks like a Blue Wyandotte. Does she have a single comb? You should create your own thread it will be easier to ask questions and reply to them.

    Sorry no photos. I only kept golden girls as I did not want to mate golden rooster with golden hens.
    However I found that the males had more brown on the head than the girls. Other than that I always waited till they were 6 weeks or so and watched for them to crow and did the "foam" check.

    The males should still have a gingery chest in goldens, and the females do sort of have speckles, but they're hard to see. I don't have any photos of males but I have some of my hens:

    You can see the speckles on her chest pretty easily, but on the others it's not so clear.
