    Hello y'all! I'll be honest, I know zilch about chickens but I rescued a young chicken and yes, it's in my house. I'm learning thanks to Google but would like to ask if anyone can tell what sex it is? My avatar pic is (I call her Precious)-or him lol. I've had this chick a whole month and am attached but she's still very nervous, skiddish. Does anyone have tips on bonding with a chicken? I have diapers for her but can't get her to trust me so that I can get them on her. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :cd

    Well, I can't see the pic enough to say male or female, but seems like an Easter Egger to me. Definitely not a Dominique or Barred Rock.
