    Pup sex help

    It has been many years since I have been here, or have owned Guinea pigs.
    Long story short, my teenage son acquired two "female" Guinea pigs earlier this year. Since that time I have placed my son in a drug rehab, and while hes been away I have discovered one GP is actually a Male and the other one gave birth on August 9. Naturally, I immediately separated Male and female into separate cages, and now the 2 babies are each separated as well. I need to get the two babies divided into cages with mom/dad depending on their sex. I'm pretty sure one is Male, the other one I am really not sure and I do not want another situation with more babies! Can you guys help me here?
    I would very much appreciate it.

    Those are really clear pictures. The one on the top looks like a boy and the one on the bottom looks like a girl. Check for a hard ridge about their genitals. If there is one, the piggies a boy.

    That's what I'm thinking as well. Was pretty certain the top was a boy and kept thinking I was sure the bottom was a girl, but then I would compare to more pictures online and second guess myself LOL
