    We have two buff orpingtons that were supposed to be sexed as females. One is quite docile and the other crows all the time and has taken to grabbing the other hens by the neck and is laying on top of them trying to breed. Yet they look the same. Are they both roosters? The crower is first (one pic) and the other one is second (other two pics). Any help is appreciated.

    [​IMG] The first is definitely a rooster, and the second is probably also - a profile picture would help verify that.
