Hackles are the neck feathers. They're pointed on a roo, but rounded on a hen.
Saddles are the feathers nearest to the tail. They're pointedon a roo and sometimes hang down like a saddle would on a horse.
Here's an example.
The feathers around the bandanna are her hackles. You can see that some of her hackles look really pointed.
The feathers hanging down around her tail are her saddle feathers.
