That's a tough one. I'd say female, but she's real thin and needs fattening up to produce healthy eggs. Even if it's a male, it's pretty thin.

Im pretty sure that leucs are one of the species where sexing is very difficult without hearing a call. Unless one of them gets extremely huge, its just going to be a guessing game.

Try misting heavily, then play a leuc recording. If they havent started calling after 11months, chances are you have females. Most people tend to get calling after 8 months, or even sooner.
