    Whist i am not familiar with the breed, it looks like a pullet to me. No significant comb development (and still pink, as opposed to red), no saddle feathers.

    The even, uniform shade of blue throughout the body indicates female. The comb and wattle development indicate that she is approaching point of lay. In another month or two, she'll be laying eggs for you.
