    Hi everyone. I purchased this RP in August and I believe at that time it was about 2 months old. Well, I've had the RP for a while now but still can not figure out if it is a Jenny or a Jake. Can anyone help me identify please????'

    Quote:OH that is funny KrisRose! I saw your post and was thinking if it's not a Tom I'd see if I could buy a Tom off you!! Great minds, huh?

    Tee-hee. I am really hoping it's a Tom because I think they are just beautiful! If it's a hen that we'll probably consider her name Thanksgiving instead of the name he/she has of Palermo. Yikes!

    Oh man do I ever hope! That is a gorgeous display! He hasn't done that since he was about 2 months old [​IMG] That's another reason why I was wondering.
