those two look like does.

Another female aspect to be aware of is that they have two red lines on either side of their slit.

When in doubt, look for those. if they aren't present you have a buck. or vice versa, if they ARE present you have a doe.

Some rabbits are just slow maturing....

IF you pull a bit to hard on there tail . It will turn male to a female . I have sex allot of rabbits. From 2 weeks old and up. I have never made a mistake yet. I dont find it hard to sex them at all. But that is just me. :)

Yeah, that is what I am thinking too...that bottom one is a male but the tail is being pulled down and not allowing it to "pop out". The space between the anus and the parts in question make me think it is a male...

It's always hard to be sure from a photo, but I would say the second one is male. Those darker patches on each side look to me like immature testicles. Applying slight pressure on each side should make the penis protrude. If the hole is round rather than a slit like the doe in the first picture, that would be another indication that the second one is male.

Ya, I know for sure now, the second rabbit is male, the first is female.

I say male. How old is the rabbit?

Not entirely sure. I was told he was 14 weeks the week before I got him, and I've had him 3 and a half weeks. So... like 18 weeks? Or possibly older. He's also an unknown breed, but looks like flemish giant/cross. Sometimes it looks like a triangle, but sometimes it pops all the way out and is tube like. No sign of testicles(just call me captain obvious, lol). He's mot going anywhere, and I won't care which he is, but I'd like to know if he's a he or a she.

I just started really wondering after I read on the split penis thread that you can make a boy look like a girl if you're pulling down on the tail, and a girl look like a boy if you press too hard.

Yes, sorry. I had some issues with Photobucket, FB and my laptop. I'm in the process of moving pics and finding, uploading pics to a new photo host and I'll link them when they are ready.

To me, it looks like all girls, except possibly that third one.

I originally had 6 pics of the 6 kits, 2 died. Now they are older and 2 bucks and 2 does. I guess it's possible the two that died were females. =(

Isn't it funny when someone has babybunnies, you are interested in them and you ask for their sexes but they tell you "we don't know their sexes until they are 6 weeks old". So you feel like going right over to check their sexes for them to help them out. :?

Happened today.. they are now 4 weeks old and i have to wait 2 weeks until they're able to sex them. Okay..

I can sex them at 2wks, but newborns is a no-go.

I'll try to remember to sex the next litter in 1wk intervals.
