    Hi all, I'm new here and pretty new to chickens. I got Flo as a three day old chick. She (?) took forever to start growing, but now is the biggest and most aggressive. Flo is also the most shy with humans. Flo is supposed to be an ameraucana hen. What do you all think? I think rooster for sure, but my husband is in denial. He thinks she's an Easter egger hen and not ameraucana.

    Flo shakes his/her mane a lot.

    Looks like an Easter egger rooster. How old is he/she?

    Definitely an Easter Egger rooster. All of those shiny, pointed feathers...
