Black Australorp- Do I have a Rooster?

I am definitely thinking this is a rooster but this is all new to me. Thanks for your help sexing this 12 week old!!

Looks like a boy to me, especially if the pullets around him are the same breed and age. Very large red comb at 12 weeks; most pullets won't turn that red until onset of lay at 20 weeks or so, so its most likely a roo.

Its looks like a roo with all the hens with him

Immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows twiceyou will disown me three times.” And he broke down and wept. Mark 14:72
