    I don't know it looks like a rooster but I'm looking at the saddle and hackle feathers trying to figure it out...and with 3 1/2 months I would say rooster because of the comb and wattle size.

    Yes I think so too. Compare it's hackles and saddle feathers with a hen. Hers are rounded his will be pointy.
