    I had a lot of buff orps this last summer. I now have one roo and 5 hens, the rest went in the freezer. By the looks it is a hen. Looks too squatty for a roo. The comb develops later but not knowing the age of the one in the pic makes it hard to tell by the comb. The tail feathers would be coming up at more of an angle too.

    But I'm sure there are folks here that will know for sure.

    Saddle feathers are rounded, not pointed.

    She looks just like my pullets! If this was a roo, the comb would be pinker and not as beige/yellow, plus there would be tiny red wattles starting now. (At least that's my experience from having some buff orps from chicks!)
