It is possible to sex beardies at this age but it takes a very experienced eye!

Put your beardie on your left hand facing away from you and use your right hand to lift its tail so you can see its cloaca. Males will have two little bumps running from the cloaca up into the tail on either side. Females may or may not have a single little bump in the centre of the tail just above the cloaca.

Have a look here to see what I mean:

yeah it is quite difficult to sex beardies when they are younger but it can be done... just do as above but be careful lifting the tail up!

I sexed mine @ 6 weeks when I bought them and they have both turned out correctly... of course i could have got lucky!
