Hello all! Just a quick question, looking for opinions to see if I should worry about this (because I worry about everything!). My Nubian had twin girls this past Friday afternoon, and they are doing great (except for a little of the yellow-gross stuff, but that's a seperate worry lol) but one of them just has a slightly prominent "girly part" for lack of a better description. The pictures explain it better than I can.....should I just keep an eye on it? Or is this cause for concern? I've never had a kid look like this in the past, but she may just have a different shape to her nethers! Thanks all!!

What hermies make is excellent pack boys and they are almost always boys.
Once the testes have been removed at around 6 months to a year of age they have all the size and power of a wether without the worry of UC.

Some that have little BB things there, do breed and have no problems, it all depends. Not all have issues of not conceiving. But some do.

But as mentioned, when she is older she can be examined to rule in or out, if she is a hermi or not.

Thanks for all the info! The thought of a hermie never even crossed my mind, so this is all so helpful! Learn something new every day! Baby girl doesn't act like a buckling in any way at this point, but obviously it's waaaayyy too early to know for sure, so I'll just keep an eye on her and see how she progresses. Sad part is I already have someone that reserved a female from this mama when she gave birth, and of course they picked this girl! Now I have to break the news to them that there could potentially be issues with her. They are amazing people though (I have sold her 2 kids previously) so after the initial disappointment of potentially not breeding her, I think she will be happy to just have her and love her regardless of the inability to breed (hopefully! Haha).

I would say this is not a sure thing one way or another. This particular vulva, in the absence of other symptoms, would not alert me to an intersex kid.

That's great to hear! I will just be keeping an extra close eye on her to see if she develops ok or if I see any red flags that I need to have her tested or looked at by a professional. I really appreciate all the info/help!! Thanks to everyone!

Ok, I have an update on this little girl. As time went on, I noticed that her sister had the same looking parts that she did. So either I have two hermies on my hands (which I would think is NOT likely) or this is just what the girls look like coming from this breeding pair. These two are the first babies I've had from this pair, so I didn't know what to expect! The girls are beautiful anyway, so whatever is happening on their back ends is fine by me! I'll post pics of her sister, just in case anyone thinks I should still be wondering about them. Thanks everyone!
