    Hello all, I saved a chick Sunday from a cat and now I am keeping the little thing. I don't know much about them so I am hoping that I get a lot of help here. I don't know how old the chick is or it's sex so I am hoping to get that info and how to be a good chick mama

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! How nice of you to take the chick in. They do so much better with friends so if you could find a couple of friends of a similar age would be great for your new chick. The learning centre is also a fab place to check out ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center Lots of great articles there that are most helpful.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow
