Hi everyone,I got my new baby Scarlett at 5wks old Dec 15th and was told she was female, now she does have nipples, that we can confirm. The last two days she's had some swelling down below around her genitals in the area that I'm pretty sure a male rat's scrotum would be. Worried as i have 2 young adult females in with Scarlett. When the area was gently examined, Scarlett did pass a few pieces of stool, however the swelling has remained. Makes me wonder if our girl could be a little boy..if anyone can help, I've attached two pics below. Theres 2 other pictures of Scarlett that show his/her markings and color. Does anyone know what color and markings she is?

Scarletts Gender?

That's a girl.

She looks like she is a high white, which means she isn't any particular marking.

Boys nuts are huge in proportion to their body. If it was a boy you'd know. :)

Thank God! We have 5 other girls in the house, a boy would be a disaster. We'd have a house full of babies. Thank you for putting my mind at ease on gender!
