    I have two chickens that I am not sure if they are hens or roosters. Both are 3.5 months old. They started crowing about two weeks ago at 5:30 in the morning.Now they crow all the time!:eek: One is a Buff Orpington and the other is a Australorp.

    They both look like roosters to me, the have quite the combs for two and a half months old.

    Also if they are crowing, then they are roosters.

    I accidentally said they were 2.5 months old when they are really 3.5 months old. Sorry about that, my mistake.
