Hi there I have just been given a chick that was rescued from a cat. How do I find out how old it. I have a chicken but I have only ever had them from rescued battery hens.

Hi :welcome

A pic would be very usefull for members to help you with its age. Nice of you to rescue it, once you know what kind of age it is you will be able to give it the care it needs. If the chick is not fully feathered out it will require a heat source to keep it warm. Here is a nice section from the learning centre with lots of articles on raising chicks ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks
