    Honestly, you're going to have to get better pics, particularly of the saddle & hackle areas.

    I can't tell either...sorry...
    Usually the hens have poofier head feathers than the roos.
    They look more like a Las Vegas Show girl than Beethoven.
    I think the mystery bird is a girl, just for the difference in the crest.

    Hackles = neck feathers
    Saddle = back feathers from neck to tail
