    OK we have 2 africans know idk or remember if there super africans or just africans, how do you tell the difference at 6 weeks? And is it possible they start to develop a dewlap early? And there is one witha thicker neck way more pronounced honk and always talks the other is quite and not as thick in the neck, could that mean he is male?

    Quote:The one with the big head and thick neck is likely tp be male. Super is just marketing term to tell you that their regular Africans are not pure, sorry.
