    This is Roberta, I was a little worried for a while because it seemed that SHE might have been a slow maturing male. I am pretty sure this chicky gets to keep HER name and doesn't become a Robert, but let me know if I am wrong.

    Looks like a female. Poof looks fluffy. Males usually look like they used gel.
