I recently attended a poultry swap and bought this beautiful Sumatra female. However I forgot to ask how old she was. I know other sumatras look glossy and black. However, this one looks greyish blueish. Also, she's HEAVY! She was only $10 so she was worth it no matter what age but I just wanted to know what her coloring was called and how old you think she is. Also, there are some small, reddish-brownish feathers on her neck. Pictures below

I don't think that she is a Sumatra, as the skin color is wrong, and she looks too large. Her color is blue.

She is not a Sumatra, as they have dark skin, pea combs, and are light in build. I think that she looks like a Blue Copper Marans, probably about 4-5 months of age. She's a beautiful hen!
