    I believe she is a Sumatra. And a gorgeous one, at that.

    Blue sumatra, they are beautiful, but very flighty.

    I thought it was an andalusian at first, but they have red combs. She isn't all that flighty and she's not afraid of the alpha hens and roosters. From day one she would grab bread from their beaks,

    Sumatra should have blackish skin on the face/comb.

    It looks a lot like our golden seabrights, except for the color that is...
