Won't stop making noise!

This RIR won't stop making noise! I thought we were in the clear and had all hens but this one won't shut up. What do you think? A chatty hen or a rooster?

A picture on the ground would have been better. We have hens with combs that look similar, the roos combs we have are twice the size of the one you show and are also 16 wks. Compare the saddle and hackles to your others. Is there a noticable difference? Even when I had RIRs there was no mistaking the roo a 16 wks. The Barred rock to the left had this pic taken a 12 wks. Either way you have a nice healthy looking bird.

Hello!  Does the noise sound like crowing?  I have a few noisy hens myself.  One hen just walks around grumbling to herself all day, and another one is always doing that BOK BOK BOK-AAAAH thing!  I'm not 100% sure, but I think it looks like a hen.

Currently keeping a flock of 14 chickens, one rooster and 13 hens.  I have three Easter Eggers, three Golden Buffs, two Marans and six Buff Brahmas.  My hobbies are gardening, chicken keeping, and beekeeping.  I'm married with two sons, a step son and daughter, and two really cute grandkids!

I had a roo that wouldn't shut up...not crowing either... he's been rehomed.

Pretty sure thats a hen Notice the rounded feathers my males are more pointed Also if you have no roo's on the yard, A hen can mimic one even crow in some instances. I wouldn't worry to much looks girly enough to me.
