saddle feathers (refer to ftfarmer22's photo) are the feathers that point downwards behind the wings. sickle feathers are the tail feathers if they are curved in the the shape of a sickle.
hackle feathers are ont he neck... generally if it is a rooster, the hackle feathers are more ponted than rounded.
