    Hi,
    Will someone please tell me if this is a blue ameraucana? If so, is it a hen or roo?
    The lady I bought it from a few days ago, says with out a doubt it is a hen. However, I'm just curious she/he did a wing dance with some of the other hens we've just added. It also, has or what seems to be mated with 2 or 3 of our newly added hens.
    Is this a hen just showing dominance? The woman refuses to take it back unless it crows...how nice. Thank you for any responses.

    Thank you for your response. I can not keep him being that we currently had 2 roosters. Could you please recommend a place to sell him (craigslist)? If so, what would be a good price? Thank you.

    best of luck selling him. Roosters are very hard to rehome for any money at all. Since he appears pure need you may get $10 or so for him. Craigslist would be the best option. Best of luck. I would do everything I could to take him back to the seller. Trade him for another hen.

    I'm sure more people are willing to back up that he's a rooster if she wants to protest
