    I have some 5-week Australorps, and I suspect at least two are Roos. I am wondering at what age saddle feathers start coming in. I haven't notice any difference in feathers yet, but this is my first time with chickens, so maybe it is just too early to tell?

    Too early for saddle feathers. They usually start coming in around 13 weeks.
