    Hello, I just got two three week old guineas and the lady we bought them from 2 hours away just told us they are two different sexes.
    I have supplied two pictures and was wondering if it was possible for someone to help me identify. I can get better pictures if needed.

    You'll have to get better pictures, especially with more light on the second one.

    Also see www.cavyspirit.com/sexing.htm and http://www.pet-informed-veterinary-a...inea-pigs.html for some more help.

    The first one I feel confident is a male. I do think the second one looks to be female but the photo is not close enough/ light enough (because of her dark skin) for me to feel confident.
