You made an honest mistake: wrong hackle.
I have some older Metz #1 & #2 grade rooster saddles are terrific for larger wets and streamers. I have no experience with their recent products. Did you buy an actual saddle on the skin? Or were the feathers loose or strung?
Edit: You state these are hen saddle. That makes sense. Rooster has much better barring and a balance of web (vs the full web of hen).
For dry flies, you want dry fly hackle, preferably "genetic" hackle. Whiting Hackle offers "100" packs of pre-sized rooster saddle hackle for tying approx 100 flies. At $20, it's not the cheapest route but is an option for those who don't need a large supply of hackle in a wide size range. There is virtually zero waste with these feathers. Other Whiting options include Pro Grade, High & Dry, or even Bronze Grade at slightly higher cost.
The tips of the hackle you show doesn't appear suitable for winging a traditional Adams. For these wings, I use neck hackles from older Hoffman hen necks; these have a slightly wider and more rounded profile that is less common in newer genetic hen necks.
If I was new at tying and couldn't source a desirable feather for the wing tips, I'd construct upright and divided wings from clumped, natural mallard flank (or teal).
