    Hello
    I need help to know what gender a baby chick is and how you know.
    My Chicken has gone broody and my mum says I can only keep the girls so um she does not wanna pay heaps for food like untill they are 7 months (for the roosters) So how do I know if he/she is a rooster or a hen? Please help.

    Charlotte-first a picture would be a great start-this way all of us can look and help-second if its a baby baby it is probably wayyy to early to sex and you may just have to wait until its about 8-10 weeks old to judge sex-depending on breed. SOme take longer to show true colors:-(
