Do you mean babies??? In hoppers/weanlings to adults it is pretty obvious. the males have little balls that hang out and on the female there is very little space between the anus and vulva. On fuzzies it is pretty easy because the females' teets are visible. the easiest time to tell on pinkies is when they are about 3 days old. at this time the distinction is the best. The males have a noticeably larger space between the genitals than the females. also the males may also seen to bulge a little or if the fur color is darker then they may have a dark spot in the space. Hope i helped :o)
