    rounded saddle and hackle feathers, tail doesn't have any long strands. Looks like she should be laying soon if she hasn't already.

    Well, my first instinct is roo - saddle feathers starting to droop, look kinda pointy. But comb and wattles are no different than my BA Pullet at that age. My BA Roo was obvious by about 6 weeks old.

    Yeah I would say Roo. I had a 5 month RIR that we thought was a hen but then it started to grow long tail feathers and crow. Had a comb and wattles like a hen but your looks like mine did at about 4-5months.
