    Hello all, my name is Tracy and I am new to raising chickens! This particular one is baffling me; it stays by itself preferring to hide in the corner.there are no other chickens like it, and many of the others pick on it.

    My question is: Is it a hen or roo, and what breed is it?

    Thanks!

    Looks like an Easter Egger rooster to me. (That's a mixed breed usually with some Ameraucana in the background. He's very nice looking.

    Do you have other roosters? How many do you have?

    We have four roosters in addition to this one! We definitely need to thin the herd; I guess I've thought it was a hen!
