I don't think so. My RIR and SS have the green metallic shiny hackles/neck feathers and they are both pullets. I think it's the pointy hackles that indicate males.
I'm not sure if the neck feathers on pullets are called hackles though.
a picture might help us....
I'll get a better one later
You need to tell us how old this chick is and the shiny, skinny saddle feathers are really a better indicator of a male than the hackles, but those sometimes are not really visible till they are over 10 weeks old.
*yes, the hackle feathers are still called hackles, even on the pullets.
