    Question Is my piggie a girl or boy??

    Hi I need help sexing my guinea pig, I got my young pig from a local pet shop not a chain store, on March 30. I was told she was a girl but I want to make sure before I go along with it. I have tried lightly pressing of the genital area to see if I could make a penis appear to find out, but I didn't have any luck and I didn't want to harm her. Thanks in advance for the replies!

    Looks like a girl to me.

    If you aren't sure you can feel for a firm line just under the skin, this is because male guinea pigs have a bone in their penis, even if you can't expose the penis you will certainly be able to feel if it is there or not.

    Have you already figure out the gender of your Guinea, it seems like a girl to me after checking the link that the moderator have attached on the comment.
