    Sexing Oreo and Browny 1 week old pups

    My guinea pig gave birth to two pups last week and ever since I have been trying to figure out their sex. I know that they're young but I can't wait and I have no idea of what i'm looking at. I took this pictures of them today. Can anyone help?

    It can be hard to sex young pigs, but if you compare them to the link I gave you on your other post (http://www.cavyspirit.com/sexing.htm), they look more female than male to me.

    The acid test of a male is whether you can feel or extrude the penis. Guinea pig penises have a bone in them, so if you put your index finger right above the genitalia, crosswise of the pig's body press down, and roll your finger back and forth, you should be able to feel it if there's one there. With your finger in the same position, press down and toward the pig's bottom and the penis should extrude.
