I didn’t know if I should post this under caged bird, the gender and breed thing or other pets, but we just got a robin chick that seems to be a late hatcher, we didn’t hear the mom and didn’t find a nest, it was really really hungry and I know how to raise it, I’ve done it once before but I don’t know how to tell the gender, is it possible to tell the gender of a robin chick?

We’re did you find this chick? In a nest or on the ground.
The ground, my dads coworker found it in her yard, the chickens didn’t find it, thankfully, she didn’t hear the mom and couldn’t find a nest so she asked my dad and my dad told me, it just so happens that a couple months ago my neighbors gave me a robin chick the same age to take care of, they took it to a friend who worked at an animal rescue, mom wants to raise this one and see if the zoo will take it, if they won’t maybe it’ll keep the pigeons out of roof. That’s why I’m guessing it’s a late Hatcher, cause it’s the same age as the one I got a few months ago

Nice work saving it. Why don’t you see if an animal rescue will take it? They will be able to release it back into the wild successfully.
No heathy bird wants to live in a zoo, and you may be able to raise it to release, but you can’t be certain that he won’t still rely on humans etc.

I asked mom about it but she wants to try raising it, I thought the zoo cause they had a very good magpie there before who could talk that seemed really happy

They seem happy because they've never known any better. The zoo is a cage, it should be a last case scenario.
Maybe you can raise it until its older, then give it to a rehab center. It will be much much happier in the wild.

We’re going to try to get it to a bird rehab today but it’s a two hour drive away
