Hello,
This is my first litter of Holland Lops. They are 4 weeks old and all beautiful little otters :) I will put what I think they are below. If you will please give me your feedback. Thanks!

I'm sorry you haven't gotten a response to this. I'm not generally very good at sexing 4 week olds. I generally don't even try until 8 weeks but...

I think my guesses would be
1. buck
2. doe
3. buck
4. can't tell at all
5. doe
6. doe
7. buck

The following user would like to thank alforddm for this post

I generally agree with alforddm, although I think #6 may be a buck... sorry, it's hard to tell with the photos (but hey, it can be hard to tell in person sometimes, too). Good luck!

I don't have the link but recently I saw a video on youtube on sexing baby rabbits. In addition to shape, color was also used to determine sex.
