I know some breeders do have some female localities that have spurs. From what I have heard/learned is look at the spur, MALES spurs are kind of curved like a claw, females spurs are usually kind of like a cone shape and do not curve (like a cats claw). At least this is what I have seen and heard.

How old is your rosy? if it is a neonate or yearling it can be VERY hard to tell what the spur looks like or even if they have spurs. Yearlings you can usually start to see quite a bit easier. On adults you should be able to tell the difference as I stated above in my try at a description.
