    If he is a boy, his saddle feathers are pointed. If she is a girl, her saddle feathers are rounded.

    I thought only roosters have saddle feathers.

    I think it's around 10 weeks old golden laced wyandotte.

    It looks like a boy to me also. You might want to post them in the "What breed or gender is this" board, they look to me more like dark cornish or something?
