    16 months is too young.

    Thank you.
    how long do I have to wait?
    sometimes you can see small signs very early. how many grams can gender be determined? I think the smallest could be male at some point

    I think I could tell when they get to around 200 grams, it's not age, it's size that allows people to give a guess on sex.

    They all look good.

    Welcome to the forum @Knubbelbubbel .

    I think it's rather early to tell if your is a male or a female.
