    I rescued a chicken in a parking lot a few days ago. This is the first chicken I've ever had and need help with the gender, age and breed! If anyone can help me with the answers I would really appreciate it.[​IMG]

    That's a Sumatran. Is it still cheeping or does it cluck?

    Probably about 8 weeks old then. Looks like a pullet for now.
