    I think I have 5 girls, and 2 boys, but not sure on a couple. The babies are 12 days old now so, let's see how I've done

    I thought I did, but apparently I've been wrong on a couple.

    When their eyes open, their gonads should be noticeable enough.
    But going from those pics, looks to me like girl, boy, girl, boy, girl boy, boy.

    One thing you can look at is a vagina has two openings. The urethra opening and the vaginal opening. The urethra opening is on the tip while the vaginal opening is on the bottom. If you see two slits, you've got a girl. From the pics, the first 6 look like boys and the last is undecided. lol

    didn't you see any nipples when their hair was starting to come in/thicken?
    a couple of the initial pics at the top of this page look like those babies have nipples

    Not before their hair came in - NO, but I thought I did when I took those first set of pictures, but I suppose it could be spots or something else I'm seeing. What's the likelihood of having all boys?

    unlikely for all the babies in a litter to be the same sex, but it occasionally happens

    It's highly unlikely but not unheard of. It is a relatively small litter so it's possible. And... omg, I just noticed, are they all REXES?!?!?!? Wow!!!! What about having mom spayed so she can stay with her little guys?

    Mom will go back to Peggy for spaying along with any girls should we find one. I will most likely have the boys neutered too since I find my neutered boys seems to be healthier than my unneutered ones. Yes, it is looking like they will be rex-es - super happy about that, only thing that could make them cuter would be dumbo ears.

    Eyes have opened, dark colored ones are obviously dark, and the light ones have red eyes

    That last one looks like a girl so does another one. You will know in a week for sure. We have had high boy numbers.. one has 2 girls and 5 boys and the other has 2 girls and 4 boys. Girls are slim pickings around here.


    They will come back to me for spaying <3 a lot cheaper with me!

    Not sure how we got almost all rexes but they are poor rexes it isnt so noticable as they age a bit. but they have it in them.


    I cant wait to sex the litter in foster. I need to make a trip over there and see how many boys and girls they have! I will pick them up around April 1st to get them here to me so I can get them in with the other boys and girls we have here. Going to be a house full of babies!

    They are all coming back for spays/neuters. My mom wants her guys neutered and I've noticed my neutered guys seem healthier than the boy with gonads - so, off with the balls! Figure we can just spend the night up there so we can drop off/pick up
