    it appears to have fat, rounded saddle feathers (the feathers that are in the saddle area, top of the back, before the base of the tail). i can't really tell, as only one of the pictures shows those feathers, but it doesn't show them well. if the feathers are all rounded and fat, i say pullet

    a cockerel will have long, thin, hanging, pointy saddle feathers. (at least in the breads i am familiar with)
