Some can sex newborns... I'll be finding out shortly whether I'm any good at it yet (I have a litter I'll be separating). They say it's much harder by the time they're a couple of weeks old -- or really, less than that.

It's another several weeks before it gets easier again. :)

I feel that I a fairly decent at newborns, otherwise I just have to wait and see when they turn 6-8 weeks old to get a clear idea.

Thanks again Sagebrush for the feedback. I've already had people interested in purchasing them. I was going to let people put deposit down to reserve at 5 weeks old and go to new homes at 8 weeks. However, now I'm thinking maybe I shouldn't have people reserving them that early so I have more time to figure out what gender they are and which one I want!

you will notice that the pictures at the beginning of this thread have a little food coloring wiped on the genetillia , if you are having trouble seeing the organ clearly [as we are in these pictures] you might try this [old timers used a little soot] --just try not to get it inside of the vulva---

Interesting... I had not heard of that trick. The first pictures in the thread just looked to me like someone had marked the photos after the fact with red to show the closeness of the parts... am I wrong on that? If food coloring is safe and would be helpful I'd try it. I've taken an insane amount of pictures trying to get good clear ones to identify gender but between wiggly kits and a camera that doesn't want to focus I haven't accomplished much! :(

Sagebrush - I must be lacking in patience as the wanting to figure out their gender has about driven me crazy!! I've looked at them SO many times, taken more pictures etc. I still don't know. ha. They are now 16 days old.

Give them another week and then you can press above the genitilia, gently with just enough to "pop" it, to see if you get a "leaf" or a "Sheath". That will let you know if you have a doeling or a buckling respectively.

I think I'll be posting pictures for you in another week Sagebrush and see if you can help me figure it out! Each time I think I figured it out I then 2nd guess it. ;) You make it sound easy! Hopefully it will be. :D

Sagebrush, Can you elaborate or possibly show a picture? I have 2 that I need to sex, and I thought I had it figured out until I saw the latest pictures on this thread! Thanks

Well, it's been more than a week and I can't say I can figure it out.
Love to hear your opinion again Sagebrush and the opinion of anyone else! If there is certain ones the picture isn't clear enough let me know. They are almost 4 weeks old.
:thankyou:

(Here's my guess: first is a doe, second is ??, and the last two are boys--but I don't know so wait til Sagebrush can verify.)

Thanks for responding EnglishSpot and for giving your opinion!
I'd love to have others chime in too.
Is the Tri Color photo clear enough? ha! We were so wanting one of the Mini Lops to be a doe!

This is awesome. I have some boxes about to fill up soon and I will try to get some close up pics to compare and post on here for others to see. The only thing i'm not sure of is a way to verify accuracy 100%. You can't tattoo that young. I guess if nothing else you get your buck/doe ratio and compare when they are a little older and see if you still have same buck/doe ratio... obviously that wouldn't be 100%
