The woman I got these from was convinced they are hens. She said they are 6 months old. They have not crowed yet, nor have they started laying. My husband went to pick them up and when he got home, I was pretty sure these are roosters. Is there any hope for these beauties being hens??If they are indeed roosters, I will need to rehome them immediately and am worried that I'm going to have roosters living in my laundry room over Christmas to keep my neighbors happy

They're both roosters. Take them back to the seller and get your money back. Sellers need to be held accountable for selling mis-sexed birds, especially when it's obvious as in this case.

Unfortunately, that's not happening. I'm trying to work out a trade situation. Thanks for the help determining!

Pullets; Orpington cockerels at that age should have lots of saddle feathers and a very large comb. You would have heard crowing by now if they were roosters anyway.
