    Is there a difference in sizes of the male and female in the Texas A&M's, Like there is for the Brown Jumbos?
    At what age will the difference start showing?

    Yes there is a difference in size. although you might not always be able to tell. sometimes you get a small female or large male and mine you could tell the difference in size at about 5 weeks. the best way to sex them is by squeezing the back of their tail just above the anus and if there is white foam it's a male.
