This sweet thing is 3 1/2 months old, and for the life of me I can't tell if it's a hen or roo. I can't keep roosters in my neighborhood, so I'm desperately hoping for good news !!!

It's C-O-O-P, not C-O-U-P-E!

Are the saddle feathers pointy? I can't tell with the wire. It look's like a girl at the moment.
For example, The long white feathers on my rooster by the tail are called saddles, girls have them too but short and rounded.

I’m not good at second but here is my buff orp roo. He is 4 months old. Definitely difference in the tail compared to yours but again. Could be the picture or age different. Idk. If I had to guess I’d say I’m leaving towards hen though.

I’m going to say cockerel. It’s very tall, has huge legs/feet, and I’m pretty sure I spy some pointed saddle feathers coming in. @Overo Mare ?
The wire makes it difficult to tell. But, after zooming in and turning my brightness all the way up I see saddles coming in too.
