Ditto.. I have 2 females and 2 males.. the females like to be in charge and only one can be..the fights can be NASTY!I would suggest a male. Female on female aggression is not pretty. They hold grudges! I have always had females and just added my first male in 2005 and the second in 2007. I will always have males and no more than one female. My female now is the alpha and the boys are happy to let her rule the roost.
