    The breed looks like a cochin, the size is bantam, and the color is splash. And it does look to be a hen.

    I love bantam cochins, I keep 4 of them to be my broody hens. They're so pretty (wish I had a splash, mine are just black or birchen) and the best little mommas! They're also pretty good layers, I get lots of tiny cream colored eggs.

    Looks like a Splash Cochin, or a very light blue (but more likely a splash).

    The guy that I got her from finally got back to me and said she is a Blue Cochin and she was born 8/7. Thanks for all your comments :)
