    I have no opinion on wether it is a boy or girl, but I am not seeing saddle feathers. All those feathers look very round and fat compared to what my roos sport.

    These are saddle feathers. Maybe tailed breeds are different but I don't think so.

    The shiny red feathers that look like a top coats tails

    The shiny gold feathers that look like a grass skirt.

    The shiny dark blue feathers that all blue roos would have to match the ones on the neck.

    My roos start getting their saddle feathers at about 3 months.
