Help sexing kits

Post Number:#1  Unread postby FluffyBuns » Tue Nov 21, 2017 5:40 pm

I read that it was possible to get an idea of a kits sex if done around 4 to 5 days old. Anyone know anything about this? I found a thread with pics on it but still couldn't tell. Let me know what ya think!

Here's the other kit. The thread I read said something about there looking like there was a space or not. Space there meant male and no space meant female.....

you will need to 'press' on the genitalia to see what 'pops out' as it were. i typically will hold the tail down with one hand, and put my index and thumb on the other hand on either side of the genital opening and push down. you CAN sex kits this young but i find it pretty difficult because there's not a lot of popping out going on. i usually wait til they're around weaning age - it's a lot easier then.
