    My pullet (hopefully) is over 3 months and judging by her face I was sure she was a she, but now I think she is starting to get saddle feathers, what do you think he or she?

    Could you post a photo that shows the full profile and the saddle feathers that you are referring to?

    It looks to be a pullet, if it was a male the spurs on its legs would be thicker and a larger comb hope this helps

    I'm thinking pullet, but agree a profile pic would help.

    That helps a lot. The feathers are nice and rounded. You have a pretty pullet. She looks similar to one of my Easter Egger hens. :)

    Those two are just starting to get their male feathers. Male saddle feathers are long, very thin, and pointed. You need to look at the whole shape of the feather, not just the pattern inside a feather.
