When do cockerals get their saddle feathers? I have an 8 week old easter egger and I am hoping it is a hen but she is growing a comb all of a sudden so she might be a he. No saddle feathers yet that I can tell.

It all depends. I dont even sex EEsby looking at saddle feathers or comb. I sex by feather pattern. If you post a pic I am sure me or someone else on here can tell you gender
