Angry Determining sex in babies...

Well it's plum difficult! I had everyone all figured out and the boys seperated from the girls then I did a good thing. I reintroduced the girls together and had Teddy and Clover and Milkie Way all in their new homes when Sass started rumble-strutting and dragging his (yea his!) behind to get all frisky with Maddie and Cinnamin! So in with Teddy he went and they started strutting and waggling and life was sorted out.

Well not really, because yesterday Teddy was making moves on my poor little Clover! I was thinking Hummm... not a good sign! So I checked Clover and Clover doesn't even come close to resembling Sass, so in with the girls went Clover and pop corning was had by all and no one was trying to woo anyone! I hope I caught this before Teddy or Sass got too frisky with my poor Clover!

Determining sex is an very hard thing to do correctly! Gads!

Your not the only one who has trouble. Well you know I couldn't tell what Jinx was for sure until he was rumble strutting and mounting his Mother at I think 1 1/2 or 2 weeks old. I couldn't believe I made a mistake. Out he went at 3 weeks old to his own place. I knew he didn't get her pregnant that young, thank goodness!
How old are the babies now?

The babies are 4 weeks old tomorrow. I have homes for 4 of them and Clover is staying here. They are going to their new homes tomorrow or Tuesday.

Wow 4 weeks already!

I had trouble with Scooby Doo too. I checked them daily and would second guess myself. At About 1 1/2 to 2 weeks he started to rumble and that was a dead give away!

I had no rumble strutting until almost the middle of the 3rd week, so I had no behavior to help determine. Glad to see you back Laurie!

Thanks Brenda!

Now that Scooby is by himself no more rumbling! It was funny to watch that tiny little thing to rumble all around though! He gets extra cuddles from all us of though because he is by himself.
