    I have 2 Rhode Island Reds ( I think) that are almost 31/2 months old. They seem big for hens, but I am not sure. Looking at other pics of hens this age, some look the same, some don't. I haven't heard any crowing as of yet. I live in San Jose, CA which is a problem if they are roosters. My son will be devestated since he has had them since they were 4 days old. Any advice as to tell for sure??
