   You do need to post pictures.  Occasionally a hen will crow, but usually it is an older hen, not a two month old so I would expect one was missexed and is a cockerel.  I know of two cases of that happening, one with me and one with a friend.

you can tell by the how upright the tail is, and by how big and red the wattles and comb are
