Yup :(
Didn't really plan on acquiring one, but someone wanted to swap their male for a male double bar (which we had a spare male).

When we picked it up, we just weren't so sure on it being male... lol

Has pictures of cocks and hens side by side for comparison.
There is a youtube posted by our own NGR800 that shows BFPF, about half way through you see the cock chasing the hen and it sounds like he is calling out.

Haha, that link didn't take me to nrg's video, but i found his..

It's still hard to tell cos the video wouldn't load past half way for me :(

We've got an age approximately, the lady who we got it from said she had only had it for a couple of months, and when sold to her she was told it was 'young'...
I would guess it'd be at least 8-9 months of age at the very least...
