    Hello all!!

    I posted a few weeks back regarding my little fluff butts but many said they were too young to sex. They are now just over 6 weeks old so wondered if anyone could have a go? I know one of them is a roo for sure! DSC_3104.JPG DSC_3105.JPG

    the only obvious one I see is the black one. But the lighting in the tub is pretty low. The one next to him looks suspicious to me, but I'm not sure.
