Sexing newborn babies
Just a couple of pics i thought i'd put up to show how i sex... obviously do not attempt this if the doe is not comfortable with you handling the kits and DO NOT press on or around the sex organs as you could damage them... just look with your eyes or a magnifing glass if you need it

the difference between bucks and does as this age (plus the relevant parts highlighted in red) you can see a distinct difference between the bucks 'gap' and the does running striaght into the anus... (well i find is easier to see at this age rofl, not everyone agrees)

buck

doe

another way to tell is to put a cold finger on the babies stomach this will cause the baby to wee... if it spurts out its a buck and if it dribbles its a doe... this method isnt 100% acurate tho

RE: Sexing newborn babies
Hi Becky. My lions head had her first litter today but only had one kit and I was wandering if I sent you a pic could you give your opinion of the sex?

RE: Sexing newborn babies
It would have to be a very clear pic... if its your first litter i'd suggest waiting a little while before sexing it

Hi Becki
What age did you sex the babies as I normally start 4 weeks old AMD it's no easy task lol this early looks alot easier and I know my doe will happily let me handle her kits this young.

Thanks
