In this case, being he's a Barred Rock, it's all about the color. In any purebred Barred bird, a pullet will be a darker color, closer to the Cuckoo pattern, while the cockerel will have well defined white barring. He also has significant comb/wattle growth.

@danieljames2k16, your multicolored bird is a cockerel and the white (Brahma?) is a pullet. For future reference, please post queries on your own thread in this forum, as it can be confusing responding to multiple people on the same thread.

I hope he is pure bred, I got him from someone that only breeds a few breeds and has them all separated.

Does anyone know the typical time that the hackle and saddle feathers come in?  Also which comes in first usually?

8-14 weeks depending on breed. Saddle and hackle feathers usually develop at the same time, but I would put a lot more trust into the saddle feathers than the hackle feathers; as male and female hackles can look very similar.
