    Hi all!! This is my 12-week old Ameraucana that I got from the feed store as a chick. (So I'm aware that maybe this makes it an Easter Egger or Olive Egger...?) Anyway, I bought as a chick and I'm thinking this is a rooster instead of a hen? I've had the breed before and this one is pretty unique compared to others I've had. I've included a photo (I hope it worked - this is my first time posting). Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
