    Help with gender determination

    Hi all!
    We are new Guinea pig owners. My mom has a dog rescue and came across these guinea pigs in a shelter that needed out so we took them. We were told it was the mom and two babies. We wanted to be 100% certain once we got them home so we looked, and mom is definitely a male. I was able to determine just from watching a couple YouTube videos, but I am finding it difficult to determine what the babies are. We donít even know how old they are. I have separated dad at the moment(same are just separate cage) until I can confirm that we donít have female babies, (which Iím thinking one of them is female maybe) and currently searching around town for recommendations on a good vet. I will add pictures of babies genders for any help that can be given. TIAClick image for larger version.

    Both babies look possibly female to me. Baby 2 is for certain a girl, baby 1 I feel about 75% sure is a girl. The adult is definitely a boar.

    To be certain about baby 1 you could feel for a penis, male guinea pigs have a bone in their penis which will feel like a firm line just under the skin just above the genitals (to get a rough idea what/where you are feeling for you can check on your adult boar). If both babies are just soft just above their genitals and there is no firm line then you have two girls.
