    I was told at the hatchery that this is an Ameraucana, but no guarentees on the sex. We only have one of this breed, so it's hard to compare to another. "She" is pretty bossy and is about a week older than the other chickens (bigger) so we nicknamed her mama. Might be a papa? I am a dirt time chicken owner in a urban area where roosters are not allowed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Looks like a mama to me, but you will have to see if s/he lays eggs :) ;)
