Here are a couple pics that show how to accurately sex newborn kits...

Notice how there is no space between the two?

This is best done before they really fur out.

Sorry for being so naive but which would be the male-top or bottom?

Sorry, I should have put bigger labels but the pics were labeled so I thought that would work....

I've sexed newborn mice and rats the same way, and even newborn kittens are the same in that males have more distance to allow for their testicles, I believe.

I have 5 new born litters I tried this on. I marked the foot of the females with a permanent marker so I can see if I was right or not. Some were very iffy. your little pics don't wiggle and squirm as much as those new babies do. I only marked the ones I thought I was sure about. Some I though might be females but I didn't mark them unless I was reasonably sure.
My current approach to would-be-suitors of my beautiful teen daughters is to have "the talk" with the young man on butcher day. It is so effective!

I used these pics to sex my kits. I came up with 1 female, 4 male and 2 question marks. LOL

These pics are very helpful though. Thanks for sharing them!

also with my blacks, the females are born with little white dots on their nipples which go away after a few days.

Great thread, I've sexed young mice like this but didn't happen to think it might work on newborn kits. Will this still work at a few days old?

It is great information, but why would one want to mess with newborns when there are several reasons not to? Not criticizing here, just curious.
