If you see a def female mark it with a small dot of red felt pen or veg dye so you know it.

Ok, here are some images. Finding this quite stressful, the little fellas are not overly impressed with me holding them upside down and photographing their privates!!!







All that I have looked at look very much like this. I haven't seen signs of nipples on any of them! Those three look like males from what I have seen so far, but......

Hi Paul, the first two are definite boys, the third a little less obvious, but more boy than girl, and the slightly inbetweens are nine times out of ten boys. It stressful, I've sexed so many baby robos now, and am always double checking a couple after splitting, all breeders have to at times. Excellent baby robo handling, and lovely clear pics!

Give me a nudge by pm if you post more pics and need some help

Thank you very much for that!

I did actually wonder whether they were all boys, simply because I couldn't spot any differences.

I successfully scruffed one yesterday, though it's hard to support their back without using both hands, simply because they are so small and I'm not a contortionist. I'll try to take a photograph of each of them and show them to you, if that's ok?

This is so helpful! Now I can check Lola to make sure!
Hopefully she doesn't up have to be a Lyle.
