    Help with Sexing- Has pics

    So the first litter of ASF babies are 21 days old today, and I finally have enough courage to mess with them some. Turns out there are 18 not 16 as I had originally thought. Anyway, I am trying to sex them. I just wanted to post these pictures and get some feed back on whether or not I am doing this right. If I am correct them I am excited, because 3 of the 5 fawn babies appear to be female.

    Those dont look 21 days old! LOL

    Yup, after a few more days to a week and the boys will be pretty "obvious". I did have one rogue male in with the females when I sorted them on day 21, but in all, it was one mistake out of 30 some.

    Re: Help with Sexing- Has pics

    Thanks everyone!! Glad to see I am doing it right.

    I know. It has been bugging me that they don't quite look to be three weeks old, but I KNOW for a fact they were born three weeks ago today. They look like they are about to open their eyes sometimes soon though. I think the problem is that there are 18 of them in a bin with only 1 first time mom. I think they are just going to be a little slow.

    Here is a pic that makes them look a bit older:

    Re: Help with Sexing- Has pics

    Thanks for making this a sticky! I am very flattered. In an attempt to put more into in the thread I got some pics of mom and dad. I had so much trouble sexing them when I first got them, so here is the adult version:



    Note: I don't think you can really see the nipples on one that is not lactating.

    I have heard that asf's are mean. Is this true? I breed rats (non-asf) and they are not mean at all.
