I bought these chickens from the local farm and home store and they are supposed to be Hens. After they have started to grow it looks like the may be roosters. I heard one crow the other day...Let me know what you guys think.

The three lighter ones are cockerels, the darker one in the corner is a pullet.

Do hens ever crow? My little bantam brahma that we thought was a pulled crowed twice this morning!

Hens rarely crow, and when they do, it's usually an older hen who has taken over the role of a rooster in a roosterless flock. If your Brahma actually crowed, it's likely a cockerel.
