I just purchased these chickens, and not sure if rooster or hen.

    I just purchased these two chickens, and was told that one was a hen, and one a rooster. Now I know I should have been more careful, but the owners drove 20 mins to deliver them to me, and it was at night. Not sure what I should have done, but here we are and now I have them. I'm thinking that they are both roosters, and if so hope that it doesn't totally mess with my flock. They are supposed to be 7 months old lite Brahmas. Any guess?

    Both cockerels. I'd drive them right back.

    Those two will be aggressive when they become a bit older. My two with flog you and attack at your feet. I can't go into the pen without a stick.

    I've already posted on the local Facebook sites, and on Craigslist. Otherwise I'm going to have to name them baked, and soup lol

    Not necessarily true. I don't have one mean rooster at my place. I had a light brahma rooster as one of my first chickens and he was completely docile.
