What gender is this Australorp? My husband swears he heard it crow this morning!

We go two of these as just a few days old chicks. We've had them for almost 3 months now. My husband swears this one was loudly crowing this morning. We were hoping for only hens because we are not allowed to have roosters in our neighborhood. It looks to be a hen to me...but maybe it really is a rooster? Anyone know for sure?
I'm absolutely, positively, 100% sure, that is a pullet/hen! No way that is a rooster. And hens could make the crow noise as well. Hens could crow if there is no male around, it's a natural thing they do to assert dominance in the pecking order. It is true everybody, hens can crow. It's science!;)
