Synonyms of "Chick" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between chick and girl ?
A: Chick almost sounds like cooler depending on how you use it. It’s like “dude” but for girls. For example,
-She’s a biker chick (like motorcycle)
-She’s a skater chick (girl who skates)
-Her tag is gamergrl32 (don’t know why but for gamers we say “gamer girl” or “e-girl” I believe)

Chick kind of has a rockin’ / cool connotation to it, although it could also refer to baby birds.
-Aww, look at all the chicks they’re so cute!
Q: What is the difference between chick and chicken, hen? ?
A: You should say chicken, (unless there are multiple, then it's chickens). Same with chick/chicks for the babies. "Hen" and "rooster" aren't as common as "chicken", since "chicken" is more generic. Hen has the connotation of being a mother, but you can still use that.

"Hen and chicks" and "Chicken and chick(s)" both work well tho so don't worry too much about it. Saying just Chickens though means they are all adults.

Hopefully, that made sense but I can try to clarify if needed.
