i'm so proud of myself! I think I just successfully sexed my four week old babies. I will post pics for verification.


Pretty sure this is a boy. I was able to get his penis to protrude.

Think this is a girl, wasn't able to feel a penis.


I just separated them, put girl back in with mom. Maybe they can be lifelong cage mates. I just hope I didn't leave the babies together too long (four weeks)...?

 
Guinea Pigs can mate as early as 5 weeks, so I think you did just fine. Of course, them mating at 5 weeks presents many problems, as the sow is going to be most young when she has her babies.

But I think you are fine.

Beautiful babies, by the way! And, you sexed correctly as far as I can see!

Edited by bpatters: Baby males should be separated by three weeks of age -- they can impregnate females shortly after that. Females can get pregnant at around four weeks of age.

Here are pictures of the babes! Their birth was an accident by the way, I rescued a pig and was told it was a girl and didn't bother to verify that! He is, in fact, a boy! He had been housed with my other female for a few months and then, babies! I just posted an introduction with the rest of my story :)
