    It's too young to tell if its male or female. give it a couple months and it'll crow or not. looks like a 3 month old pullet.

    It doesn't really look like a chicken to me. What size is it roughly?

    Looks like some sort of quail to me, but I'm not sure what type.

    I'd say post it's picture on the quail section, if you go under "other backyard poultry" there's a place where the quail folks hang out and can help you a lot more than us chickens!

    I have some quails and that is a quail like others said.. Most likely a female cause of the bald spot near her head is from mating.
