    Really hard to see in the photo, but it looks like that is rounded feathers rather than spikes in the saddle.

    I have had plenty of hens with some funk in the tail feathers, and most roo's have substantial comb by 14 weeks, and this has hardly any at all.

    So I think pullet.

    Do you know the breeds involved? That can also help determine how things are adding up.
