Thanks for a more thorough explanation of the genetics. I find genetics to be absolutely fascinating.Both parents have to carry orange for a daughter to be orange, while only one is needed for a son to be orange. Higher likelihood that it's a boy. If there's a mom-cat around that is calico or orange it could still be female though. Only way to know for sure is to catch it.
I have an orange female cat, her mom was calico and dad was orange. The rest of the litter were orange males and a few calico females.
