My beautiful Australorp hen started crowing this morning. She is 12 weeks old. What do you think?

I have heard of crowing hens but they are very rare. I can't say that I've actually seen one just heard of them.
Most likely you have a rooster.
ETA: Those do look like rooster tails feathers.
If it IS a hen and crowing, you should put her in the cooking pot....BAD LUCK
That is a rooster
Dang it! And there will be no cooking of peeps. LOL
Rooster. Comb is too big for a 12 week old hen.
ETA: from Missouri!!!
Rooster. Look at the size of those feet! He's still growing!
Anyone need a rooster? Im a city girl. You guys are breaking my heart. You were suppose to say crowing hen.
I'd have to go with Rooster too...saddle feathers are a give away.
My grandma always said, "A whistling girl and a crowing hen always come to some bad end."
I think the bad end is it looks just like my two BA Roos that just started crowing and then after crowing a week or two they have gotten frisky with the ladies...
