    Have you seen www.cavyspirit.com/sexing.htm?

    It'll be easier to sex them for sure when they're a couple of weeks old. As always, the male pups have to be removed from mom and sisters at 21 days of age.

    The first two look like girls and the last one looks like a boy to me. It'll be much easier to tell when they're older.

    And the third one is a girl

    Sexing really confused! please help :)

    I made a post a while back about this, I was curious what genders they were when they were first born, however it was WAY to hard to tell at that age. Now that they are 14 days old I figure it may be easier to tell. Me and my family have looked up many websites and posts about sexing guinea pigs but we can't seem to figure out are piggies genders it would be awesome for your help.

    I think the first two are female... the 3rd one... I can't really tell. Trying pushing right above the genitals and see if a penis comes out. You may have to hold your finger there for a few seconds until it comes out.

    Make sure to separate the males at 3 weeks old.

    Don't make multiple posts on the same topic. Find your old threads and just add to them. I've merged these.

    The pictures are small and poorly lit. Closer, brighter pictures would make it easier to tell.

    Have you looked at http://www.cavyspirit.com/sexing.htm? Baby #1 looks exactly like picture 3 on that page, and I'm pretty sure baby 3 does too, but it's too small to see. I can't tell about picture 2 -- needs better lighting and a larger picture.

    It is a little hard to tell with the photos, but I think might be all girls.

    If you feel just above their genitals you will be able to feel the penis in a male as a firm line (girls won't have the firm line they are just soft and squishy there) even if you can't expose the penis, as guinea pigs have a bone in their penis.

    I gave you a link with more pictures than you'll ever need for pig genitalia. Cameras have flashes, or you could hold the pig under a light.
