    Would really appreciate your help in confirming the genders. I feel that they are all females but not 100% sure. Thanks in advance

    I think you have two females and one male. The male being the middle. If you can, press very gently, and the penis will extend. If it's a male, that is.

    Edit: Last could be a male as well. Not so sure.

    Hi thanks for replying. I've checked the sites before but still am not sure. I cannot make the penis extend for all 3.

    Hmm, I'm almost certain the middle is a male. It's very important to find out as soon as possible, because we don't want him (or maybe them) to backbreed with their mama and sister(s). Hopefully someone else will chime in soon.

    Re: SEXING 3 week old pups

    Yeah I agree with u. Pup 2 does look like a male after rechecking. It surely looks like the ones on http://www.cavyspirit.com/sexing.htm

    Thank u for your help. If I still can't determine the sexes, I'mma separate them all after 3 weeks to be sure.

    Re: SEXING 3 week old pups

    I can trace a slight "Y" line from the initial "V" after spreading the genitals apart on both pups 1 and 3 but none on pup 2. So I think pups 1 and 3 are females and 2 is a male. I got confused about where to look for the "line" at first.

    Pup one is definitely a female. I'm a little unsure about pup three, though. Pup two is definitely turning out more to be a male.

    Hmm, yep. Might be female. They have beautiful colors, by the way.

    Pup 3 does look like a female to me.

    If it helps at all here are some photos of mine that show what you are looking for when you gently part the genitals on a young guinea pig.

    Sexing three pups (3 weeks old)

    Hi again! I've three pups that are three weeks old and need help sexing them before they get each other preggo. I've been to the vet but he was a bit nonchalant determining their genders and I'm now unsure.

    Re: Sexing three pups (3 weeks old)

    I suspect pup 1 and 3 are females. Pup 2 a male. But the (trainee?) vet said that pup 1 and 2 are males(female at first), and pup 3 is female. He told me that they're easier to sex as they get older. I've separated the pups just in case as they just turned 3 weeks old.

    Re: Sexing three pups (3 weeks old)

    Are these the same pups from your other thread? These pictures are a bit harder to tell, but pup one really looks like a female. Also, you might want to merge the threads if they're the same pups, as one is bound to get deleted for a repeat thread.

    Re: Sexing three pups (3 weeks old)

    How do I delete the other thread? The old one was taken when they were a week old and this one is when they're 3 weeks.

    You can message a mod or an admin, and they'll be able to remove it.

    Also, do you have other photos of them, or can take new ones? A bit more clear, and we can hopefully pinpoint the sex.

    You need to take closer, brighter and clearer pictures. It's impossible to tell anything from these.

    I've been trying with and without flash. My camera photos suck. I'll try again tomorrow using another phone. Sorry about that.
