    Our Rooster died this past Monday.He was VERY distinct in color,comb,and crowing at 9 weeks. The rest of the group(5 of them and almost 14 weeks) look nothing like him.There is only one that I think might be a rooster,so I am posting pictures. Will this be our new roo?

    For 14 weeks, I'd say hen, too.
