Female Sheep as Sacrifice

I used to know that only ram could be sacrificed. Later I have heard that ewe can also be sacrificed. Is this correct?

Ewes can also be sacrificed; it is permissible. Some scholars consider that sacrificing ram excels sacrificing ewe, because our Prophet (p.b.u.h.) had rather sacrificed ram. That does not mean sacrificing ewes is forbidden.
