    Are you asking if they are roosters?


    Posting a picture will help with that.

    roosters are supposed to start crowing at 6-8 weeks. if you want to test it drop a hat in the middle of the group. roos will go investigate once they are a few weeks old. the girls will start laying around twenty weeks, give or take a few.
