    wondering if my Ameraucana is a roo or a hen. im really leaning towards roo. If so this sucks because we have grown fond of it. we already have a roo and i would like to keep them both. are they able to stay in the same coop its only 12x12 run and the coop is 5x12.

    She's an easter egger hen. She should lay green or blue eggs for you!
