I will give it longer so that I am sure, but if they are all males then they will have to go and maybe I won't have Hermanns just Horsfields, I can't wait for another lot to mature and I can't afford adults, what is really annoying is I chose from 2 different years groups specifically to avoid this happening and I paid alot for them

I'm really sorry, you must be feeling so disappointed. Maybe it is too early to sex them accurately and there's a fleeting chance there's a female hiding amongst them.

Poor alleycat, she needs about 20 female hermanns. If the eggs really were incubated for females then something went wrong.

Well I recon one two and four are your females and number three is the male. Not sure how others saw them as males.
Can we have some up to date pics please to see how the (boy's) are doing please alley.

Interesting
My guess at that time would have been female, hmm , male,male ,
but still way from correct which tells that its all a guess at that size.

ooh I love this - good on you Alley for posting again. Easy in hindsight but I reckon number two is the male. I base it on the shell to shell ratio in that a male needs to thrash his long peccadillo about left to right and needs the freedom space to do this ! case rested. !

I guessed at three being the male and the others female. However I know nothing but enjoyed playing the game.
