    I got this bird when it was roughly 6-8 weeks old. We have been taking care of him/her for about 3.5 - 4 months. It is a very difficult bird to take a picture of. These are updated pics; I posted a month or so ago. Because of it being white, I can't really tell about the hackle feathers pointiness. There still don't seem to be any pointy hanging saddles. The comb has only developed a little since it was brought home, but has always appeared dark pink. The comb is a little darker these days.

    I'd say hen, her 'saddle' feathers are round, think it's called a cushion on a hen

    here's a pic of my 5 mth old roo, he's not the same breed, but you can see the difference in feathers
