    Ok so I just took some updated pictures. People were saying to post a pic of his/her feet. I also got a picture of "it" shaking so you could see the long feathers on its neck. So is it a rooster?

    It still looks like a rooster to me, though a photo without it shaking would help be sure. And it is an Easter Egger, with those greenish legs. A true White Ameraucana would have blue slate legs.

    It also looks like a rooster to me. He's an Easter Egger, as Ameraucanas should have blue legs.

    I'm not very good at identifying breeds, but I think you have a rooster there.

    Oh wow! How do I keep a rooster with my hens? (We DONT want anymore chicks!) He never shows aggression towards me but sometimes chases one of my hens in the morning

    Have you seen him trying to mate with your hens yet?
    As long as you collect their eggs daily and don't allow the hens to sit on them, they won't be hatching any chicks. Are you allowed to have roosters where you live? Personally, I like having my rooster around. They are very good at protecting the rest of the flock from predators. Yes, they crow, but I don't mind that and I don't have neighbors that could complain about it.

    Not trying to alarm you, but it looks as though he may have some sort of sore or something on his right foot/leg area. Could just be dirt or shadow or angle or something, but, you may want to take a look at it. It looks like a hollowed out hole or something.
