    help sexing 3 week old guinea pigs?

    Hi all,

    I bought two 4 week old female guinea pigs from a lady in the middle of this year, not knowing that one was already pregnant. Luckily, she gave birth to three beautiful babies without any complications.

    The babies turn 3 weeks tomorrow. Since they were born I've been looking at the sexing guides on Cavy Spirit/Guinea Lynx, as well as a whole lot of other forum threads, but can never come to a definitive conclusion! I'm a first time guinea pig owner and I've never actually owned or seen a male guinea pig before and can't compare. I can't afford to pay $150 to get a cavy savvy vet to sex them The penis doesn't seem to pop out on any of them (although I did think I felt a tiny vertical bone above piggy 1's genitals at one point). Any other opinions would be much appreciated.

    Piggy 1. I thought male last week because of the bone, but this picture looks female?

    Piggy 2. I'm thinking female.

    Piggy 3. I think male.

    Thank you in advance for the help!
