    Hi There!

    Just to say "hello" I'm a mom who tried to convince my kids for more than a year to 'want me to get them a guinea pig'...well, I gave up trying to convince my kids and I now have two lovely ladies - and yes, now that mom has the guinea pigs, the kids are interested .

    Re: Hi There!

    Hey -- I wanted to update my intro with our additions...when I bought my girls, I didn't know that one of them (Reeses-the tri-color) was pregnant...the kiddo's were born a week ago on Feb 27, just took some pics this weekend and wanted to share...
    the darker one with less white on left side is definitely a female...still undecided about the one on the right with the most white, from what I can see at the moment (the underside/genital area has black fur/skin and difficult to see) I'm thinking it looks like a boy, so will be airing on the side of caution concerning that one (we are actually calling it/him Henry) over the next week or so.

    Re: Hi There!

    I can't tell, the pictures are too small. Can you extrude the penis?

    From what I can see I would think it is a male.

    Re: Hi There!

    I just resized one of the pics...hopefully better to see... @bpatters, no I can't...but that little 'bump' in the center of what looks like a Y is not on any of the others--and it is definitely more pronounced today than it was several days ago.

    Re: Hi There!

    I can't see it that well. But you should be able to feel the ridge of a penis if you put your index finger right above the genitalia and rub crosswise across his abdomen. If you hold him in you lap with his back to your chest, you should be able to push down into the abdomen and down toward his anal sac and see the penis protrude. You can even help it emerge by pulling the sheath back away from it.

    Looks male to me so make sure to check if you can extra/feel the penis.

    LOL @barbaramudge
    Another week has gone by - and yes I can feel the ridge and was able to see the penis -- so Henry is definitely a he. One more week for him before the "3 week B-day"
