    [​IMG] She is 100% female. :) The saddle feathers you are talking about are just the longer side tail feathers that most people confuse with saddle feathers. Hens will make many rooster-like sounds too, sometimes when laying an egg they will make loud "bauwk" noises or when sighting a hawk they will do their loud alarm call., there are many other circumstances as well.
