I have a GLW that is supposed to be a pullet, came from a hatchery. She is right about 5 months old, maybe a little older. The other day I noticed these saddle feathers, most pictures I've found of GLW hens find have saddle feathers like this. The comb only recently started getting red, which made me think she was getting ready to start laying. What do you all think? Pullet or cockerel? I'm going to die if its a cockerel, because then I he will have to go :(

That is a cockerel, no question. GLW hens do not have that fringe of saddle feathers and they are evenly laced up the hackles, unlike the males who have a "cape" of gold hackle.
