Help with sex of bunnies?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby WyoBunnies » Wed Dec 05, 2018 5:00 pm


I hope this is the correct place to post this. I need help sexing 8 week old kits. If I post pictures, can somebody tell me if my assessment of their sex is correct?

Here are my babies. Let me know if these photos are ok. I labelled my guess on the pictures. I tried to determine using the distance from anus to genitals, but these little buggers have hair all over their bits! haha
