    Agree 1 hen and 2 roos.

    They don't look 4 months old to me but younger.

    My Buff Orpingtons pullets at 4 months were fuller in build with a lot more tail fluff and just general fluff and had a big red comb (hen size) as they were getting ready to lay.

    Your chickens look maybe 3 months old.

    Two males, one female, and not buff orpingtons, more like mixed breed birds.

    I must admit I was wondering the same thing too as they aren't built heavy enough nor fluffy enough.

    Maybe they are just young and will fill in.
