Actually, if you find a male calico, he is probably an "XXY" male. On the other hand, yellow tabbies are 80% males. I have/had 3 orange females. My first, Leontyne, was a real "tomboy." But Scooter, actually the roomie's cat, was a sweet lady and now we have Roxie who is just sweet as can be to people, but really would like to be an only cat. So, yellow/orange tabby females are rare, but not unheard of.
