    I dunno.......I think I'm seeing two sows (both white bums) and one boar (tan). There are some excellent pics here on the Forum that clearly show the difference. Perhaps the OP will come along and share them.

    i thought so too initially but one (the grey) has a button like appearance as opposed to the fleshy v shape i keep seeing , i checked the mom and hers looks more like the white one, you can especially see it because at the bottom tip of the ďvĒ thereís two fleshy bits, the other two pups donít have that? the other two have like button bumps, iím not really sure what to think!! haha

    First and third photos look like possible boars to me, I am unsure on the other one (with more grey on the bottom). It might help you tell for certain to feel for the penis bone, males will have a firm line just under the skin above their genitals because of this bone, sows will not.

    Here are my own close up images to compare to.

    This is a boar.
