I’ve never had female piggies before but I recently got two, one I’m certain is a girl but the other is confusing me a bit, one time I look and I think girl but then sometimes I doubt whether or not she is. I was told she was about 3 months old and she very small (500g) so I cant really tell. As I said I’ve not had girls before and I just want to double check. I also noticed a small amount of yellowish crust on her genital area and it looks like there may be something in it or below does anyone know what this is.

Hi! Yes you have a girl with a nice fleshy seal that is only open when your girl is in season.
Please compare with the pictures in our guide: Sexing Guide
