    Someone posted a picture of emerging saddle feathers once many pages ago. I just couldn't find it again. Would like to see what they look like so I know what to look for when I check my chicks' backs. If someone has good pictures of what saddle feathers look like on a 10 weeks old (or near that age), would you please post? Thanks.

    @TREX - Your explanation and description are very helpful. I am afraid I've seen something similar on one of my chicks. I will have to go check again to be sure they are pointy and not webby. I don't think this is the picture I saw. But your picture is very clear and easy to see. Thanks.

    Hi all, here is my EE (part araucana) supposed roo. Most agree that it's a he but s/he has no pointy saddle feathers.. Maybe he's a late bloomer? S/he's rumpless. I've been searching for someone else who has something like this but all that I've found have tails. I'd love to see if anyone else has any rumpless EEs and what they look like as adults!

    Aloha kakou, So I think the black and orange one is a male and the other two are female. What do you guys think? Mahalo in advance. :)
