    Not exactly sure. Bought them at an auction a little over a month ago. I'm guessing somewhere around 20 weeks. They were sold as two hens. They've doubled in size since I got them.

    Yep. Sometimes you think you've got a Pullet and then it starts crowing...

    At that age their probably both hens. Have you heard any crowing?

    I have not heard any crowing. Neither one have started laying either.

    I have questioned the bird you said was possibly a cockerel since I got it. Its tail is fairly long and is a little bigger than the other.
