Hackles and saddle feathers?  What exactly should I watch for?

Nothing is trivial.

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave is only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." 

Where will you spend eternity?

Yes, their male specific feathering. Those feathers don't usually begin to develop until about 10 weeks old, and take a few more weeks to really be visible. Male hackle feathers have a distinctly 'flowing' sort of look. The saddle feathers emerge from underneath the back feathers, and are very shiny, almost wet looking. 

The red bird in this photo is my rooster. This was taken at about 10 weeks old, and you can see the saddle feathers just beginning to show.

Thank you for the picture.  I have seen hackle feathers on a rooster but not sure about the saddle feathers.

Here he is all grown up. You can see how different those male saddle feathers are compared to the hens in the picture.
