    Hello backyard chicken board. This is my 2nd year raising chickens, and I would really appreciate some help.

    I have a flock of 12. Half buff orpingtons, and half golden-laced wyandottes with one rooster/cockerel.

    They are all at 3 month mark, and I've noticed sone behavioral changes.

    Two of my buff orpington hens are now 'crowing'

    Is this normal?

    Then they're most likely roosters.

    I've always had good luck with the chicks I buy from hatcheries being the right sex, but they're not always right
