    This is Porquette, our 6 month old. I have been keeping a close eye on our girls as we are waiting for eggs. Today I noticed longer feathers on her tail. I did check to see if they were just loose and poking out further. Can you please check out these pics and help me tell if I am seeing signs of a roo? Porquette is not as cuddly as Kellogg, and she is always on the alert bossing Kellogg around. Including getting quite loud if she can't see our be near her, like if Kellogg is cuddling in my lap (Porquette hates to be touched but will come for hand fed scraps). That with her slimmer taller body shape had me worried before but I decided to wait for more signs. Thank you in advance.

    1. Kellogg - Whom I'm comparing with. 2. Porquette - Tail close up
    3. Porquette - full body 4. Porquette - Face

    I don't see any saddle feathers so I would say pullet.

    Pullet for sure. I don't see pointy saddle or hackle feathers, and the comb isn't too large.
