    I am very new to keeping chickens and trying to learn fast. I have 2 chicks that I hatched out that are about 5 months old. they are from someone's project to recreate auburn javas. obviously they came out odd colored but I am trying to figure out if they are hens or roosters. From what I've researched they seem to be hens - I would think by this age they would have those big long tail feathers but I want to make sure before I decide what to do with them. Help!!
