Default Sexing the babies

Wow, aren't robo babies hard to sex?! I had a look last night and I think I've got one boy and three girls. I was hoping for three of one sex and one of another, it will make things easier! I've got a syrian breeder coming round in a couple of hours to help me out. I've just been tidying the flat and animals like a mad woman! I've already got names for all the babies:

McVitie (I'm certain he's male, he will be living with biscuit)
Aero (Pretty sure she's female, she will be living with Jaffa Cake)
Double Decker
Lion Bar (Both will be renamed as they are going to live elsewhere. I think they are female)

Buuuut you all know how robos can suprise you by turning out to be a different sex

I really don't want to see Double Decker and Lion bar go, they're like part of the family! At least I know that they are going to a good home. I'm not charging the new owners for them as I know that they will take good care of them and I can still see them whenever I want

Just found out that I have a full litter of girls! The breeder was very impressed with them all as not one gave him a nip, aparently robos like nipping him! He was telling me about his Syrians and how tame they are, I love talking about hamsters!

Its good that you have got someone to help you Katzilla - I have sexed robos, chinese and russians and syrians before and find them to be pretty much the same when it comes to sexing

Robos are tough to sex when they're young. I find the difference in sexing a 4 week old robo compared to a 8 week old robo is HUGE! Its so much easier as they get older but its pretty tricky when they're little babies (which is why so many pet shops get it wrong).

At last the women out number the men in this house! I don't know about anyone else, but I have found that the female robos have a more laid back temperment to the male? Yet I've found it's the other way around with Syrian?
