    My 2 buff orpingtons are approx 22 weeks old and "Betty" crowed this morning. I bought them at 10 weeks and was assured they were female. I am now thinking that they are both cockerals as they have longer feathers at their tails. They also are getting a bit aggressive towards each other. Still no eggs yet either. They have a small lump at the back of their ankles too.
    Any advice would be appreciated as I live in a city, I will need to rehome them as we can't have the noise.
    The wing feathers are rounded, but the bottom longer feathers are pointed.
