    Looking at the splotch on it head and its legs id say BOY. They say boys have a slotchier not defined spot on its head where as females have a more defined circle. And females legs are blacker on the fronts yours are not. But that is just my opinion. Also I think boys are more grayish than black fluff.

    Craigslist to recoup your money? Buy some more? Let him grow, then eat him? See if someone local would trade you a pulley for your roo? Good luck!!
