Hi, I am new to chickens. I bought some chickens about 4 or 5 months ago, they were pretty small and sold to me as hens who would begin laying soon. However, it has been a long time and no eggs. Plus, some of them are crowing. I read on the forum that sometimes the dominant hen(s) will crow, and I thought this was the case. I am just beginning to wonder though....

Can someone take a look at this picture and see if they really are hens? I would really appreciate it, thanks.

Hi there and welcome to BYC

I am sad to say that all appear to be roosters. Leghorns?

Huh not really sure...they look like leghorns? Can you get a closer up picture of them? I know the leghorn hens can get pretty big combs but I can see why your worried. The one towards the front sure looks a little rooish to me. The one back right looks like it could be a hen but can't see it well enough.
