    At this point,I have no idea how old they are. I got them 6 weeks ago. I was told they were 1 1/2 yr old hens. Today,one tried mounting a hen. It doesn't crow though,so this one I would imagine is under 6 months. The other one I think is a hen,but someone on a facebook page says they're both males,opinions[​IMG]

    First impression would be 2 gals, but one has long cape feathers.

    Can you get full side views of each.

    Both are cockerels, and both are less than a year old. Probably 4-6 months old. The seller knew they were not 18 month old hens.

    Contact the seller and have them refund your money. Those are young cockerels.
