    At 5 months that's a pullet who is sexually maturing, and should start laying soon.

    Sadly, those do look like the start of saddle feathers, so I guess you have a cockerel on your hands

    I was afraid of that. Thanks for responding. Would you say it's 100% a Cockerel at this point?

    I'm not sure, it's lacing is very neat, unlike a cockerel...
