    I bought some chicks from a local feed shop, who said they were all hens. I have been hearing some loud noises coming from the coop and am afraid that I may have a rooster Australorp on my hands. They are about 20 weeks old. What is the verdict?

    Looks like a rooster to me. But please don't take that as written in stone. Please post photo at "what breed or gender is this."
