Hello! We had two sweet piggies born on November 26. They are now almost 5 days old. I am trying to figure out their gender and have some photos - but no matter how many videos or photos I've looked at or read, I am still at a loss as this is the first time we have tried to sex them! Could someone please let me know what they think? I feel like they are both girls (as I see two Y's vs. any i's), but I would appreciate some help! Thank you very much!

Looks like two girls to me.

You can also feel for a firm line just under the skin right above the genitals, male guinea pigs have a bone in their penis and you can feel it. If it just feels soft and squishy that's a girl, if you feel a line that is a boy. You can then gently push down where the firm line ends furthest away from the genitals then roll your finger downwards to expose the penis to 100% confirm a male.
 
Thank you! I will check again in a week and see if I can feel anything, just to be sure… I could not feel anything today as they are tiny still.
