I've inherited these guys my buddy says they are hens but due to constant cawing I think they are roos what do you think I've heard that they can switch genders how often does this happen thank you for your help
I’m sorry but I see two Roos. Gender swapping is possible but I doubt that’s what happend considering you have TWO Roos that you suspect switched. Likely, your buddy mistook them as Hens before the reached crowing age.

can you keep Roos where you live? I’d hope so, they’re beautiful little guys :)

It’s very rare, and EXTREMELY unlikely that it happend to TWO of this persons hens. It is more common in flocks missing their rooster, where a hen will start to take on the traits of a male and begin crowing and everything to take the place of the rooster. (The transitioned Rooster cannot mate with a hen)
