Is this a Rooster?

Like I said in an earlier post, I think that we may have 2 roosters amongst our 13 chicks.  Two of the chicks were very loud chirpers when they were small (much like my 2 boys) and I have heard that that could indicate a male bird.  Now that they are bigger, these 2 chicks are developing the red “things” on top of their little heads.  Much faster than the other black chick the same age.  They also tend to be the chicks in charge…which definitely sounds like the men/boys in my life! Tell me what you think.  It is the black chick on the right hand side of the video a rooster???

    I am not a chicken expert–so really, I have no idea. But my roosters always like to perch and keep an eye out for all the little hens. The roosters always fly up in the tree and then when they learn to make noise–that’s where they do their “cock-a-doodle-doodling”.

    Some of my hens have the red stuff on the top of their heads–so that doesn’t mean that it’s a rooster (as far as I know).

    But my roosters are always significantly larger too–so if they are growing at a much more rapid pace–then it’s probably a rooster.

    Like I said, I’m no chicken expert–but it looks like it could be a rooster.
