Help Sexing 6 day old Bubs?

Momma is a teeny rescue girl who looks like a double rex, but has proven herself to be a regular rex as there are only 3 rexy babies in her family of 8. Daddy was a beige hoodie, standard coat...only male she was ever with from 3-4 weeks of age when she was dumped in with him




And her bubbies I seem completely unable to sex. Now I have had 3 prior rescue litters here...Bronwens I accurately sexed at 3 days (3 years ago), Sweetie's at 1 day and Molly's at 1 day old. So I am incredibly frustrated at not being able to sex these little guys. I have adopters lined up IF I know the sexes

So I seem to be a little insane about not sexing these bubs...one more try with bubby sexing pics. I am seriously starting to think i have a litter of boys... :

Baby 1


Baby 2


Baby 3 (maybe a girl?)


Baby 4


Baby 5


Baby 6 (girl?)


Baby 7


Baby 8


All that picture taking was exhausting!!! Zzzzzz

You're thinking right, because they're all boys.

The third one looks somewhat like it might be a female, but I dont think so. Because the genitals are pointing down and there's a pouchy space between the genitals and the tail.

This is what a female would look like.

I thought they all looked like boys too! It's easier when you have both types to compare the two. But having only one you start to get confused looking at them all. I also agree that one of them might be a girl... but they mostly look like boys to me!

It seems they are all boys, and I shall now forgive myself from being so confused. None scream "girl" at me, and 3 other breeder friends on Goosemoose have also said they all look like boys as well. LOL.

BUT of course I will wait for those nipples to show up or not, before the final sexes are truly known

Well, I guess this means no "keepers" for me. I will have to find homes for all 8 boys.
