My rescue kittens are 4 weeks old almost 5 by my vet's guesstimate. He admitted he's not that experienced with kittens this young, take his guesses on sex with a grain of salt. Today I had my horse vet out for fall shots on my mare and he took a look.

Small animal Vet said all females, one maybe male.

Horse Vet says I have 3 males and only Natalia is a female.

My vet tech friend disagreed and said all girls.

If I get pics of their genitals is anyone here experienced enough to help me out? At what age does sex become a bit more obvious?

At this point I'm just waiting for testicles to appear and trying to think of alternate names.

At 4 weeks it's usually not too hard. It gets much easier by 6 weeks though.

What colors are they? Any tortis will be female, and all orange tends to be male.

Go ahead and post pics and I'll give it a go :)

Alright got some pics finally that weren't a total blur. Not easy!

I'm pretty sure my horse vet is right looking online at sexing guides. Jemma (Boy), Angel (Boy), Jingle (Boy) and Natalia (Girl)

Agreed. Think of it like this; female kitten has ; - a dot and a line close below it, male has : - two dots farther apart, the space between them is where the testicles will come in.
