    Hi everyoneI am a newbie too I had a chicken called Ember for a few days then it died. RIP
    I am getting a buff Orpington but at the moment it is still in the egg under a broody chicken the only problem is if it does not hatch or it does but is a rooster.
    Is there any way you can tell thx

    Feed is the great equalizer. Keep her hungry until she starts to associate you with feed. Do not try to approach her - make her approach you. Good luck at taming her.
