    Hi everyone! Myself along with some other chicken people I know are a bit on the fence with my chickens. I have had these chickens about 2 months-and I believe they are just about 4 months old. The first two pictures are of my lemon Orpington "Rachel" I've never had any suspicions of Rachel being a rooster until this morning when I went outside and she/he made what I'm calling a wanna be crow. Sounded like Rachel was learning his/her new voice possibly?
    Third picture is my lemon Orpington cross (I believe is crossed with a frizzle) "phoebe". From this picture I am assuming phoebe is a rooster but wanted some opinions. Phoebe is not aggressive, very mild mannered.
    Thank you in advance!

    To me they both look like roosters.
