    Bonding troubles

    Just 3 days doing well together is too soon to be trying to move them. As @JBun explained, it is when they are moved that issues can arise. It is best to be sure they have a super solid bond before moving them to a new area. I would suggest a bare minimum of a full week (starting now). Two weeks...

    Why are my bonded rabbits are fighting?

    They need to be separated even if they appear to be doing well again. By allowing them together, you risk another fight. If that happens, it can prevent them from bonding for real in the future (after she's spayed). There is no benefit to allowing them together at this stage-- only risk. As...

    Why are my bonded rabbits are fighting?

    If they are fighting now, absolutely separate them. The more they fight now the less likely that they will bond in the future. You do not want them to fight -- ever. A single serious fight has the potential to prevent them from bonding in the future. As for the boy having been neutered 4 weeks...

    Offically 6 months

    I liked to feed the large greens as is (not cut). I think they enjoy munching away on those big pieces. :)

    Offically 6 months

    Increase the quantity of his greens slowly so you don't overwhelm his digestive system. If you desire to introduce more variety of greens, each new green should be offered only one at a time. So say you want to introduce him to basil. Offer a small amount of basil one day. Next day offer it...

    Getting another rabbit

    Breed makes no difference when it comes to bonding. The important thing is to have your boy neutered first. Once he's fixed, he'll need up to 6-8 weeks after the surgery for hormones to fully dissipate. Those pesky hormones need to be gone to facilitate a bond. Once that's done, then you may...

    New first time bun Mom

    As others have noted, the cage size isn't much of an issue with a free roam bun. It is just serving as a "home base." That said, however, I would suggest deciding whether you want to litter train her to a specific box OR have the whole cage base be a litter box. Right now the cage setup will...

    Safe fresh veggies and bath mat?

    Towels can be a danger too if bun decides to chew it. Each rabbit is different so anything that gets chewed and ingested should be removed/replaced. I've had a pair of rabbits love to lounge on a memory foam bath mat for many months and then one day decided they would start chewing on it...

    Help with late bonding giant rabbits?

    This behavior doesn't necessarily mean they are trying to cuddle with each other. It depends on their personalities/relationship. It could just as well be them "guarding" their respective territory lines. In other words, they lay down on that border as if to say "this is my space and don't think...

    Help my bunny ate chocolate

    Eating hay is great for her. You have the right idea of giving her plenty of hay to flush any toxins through her system. She's quite young but keep an eye on her poos. If she's still having good (normal) poos, then she should be fine.

    Should I put my two unspayed bunnies togheter or not?

    I think you may have been heard about behavior in a fixed rabbit changing when in the presence of an intact rabbit of the opposite gender. An intact female, for instance, could still affect a neutered male. He may sense her hormones. I was just going to mention that even though they are getting...

    Is it a good idea to try and attract wild rabbits?

    My concern with attracting wild rabbits (if you have a pet rabbit) is that those wild rabbits could potentially be carrying RHVD2 and infect the yard with it. If that happens, your rabbit will be at risk. Here's a thread with more on that...

    Litter box

    ^agreed! You don't want her to get in the habit of peeing on carpet! Not only is that a difficult habit to break, but the urine smell will only encourage her to keep going there again and again. Keeping her on wipeable surfaces is a good idea even if it reduces her exercise space. The sooner...

    Any temporary measures to keep unspayed rabbits from breeding?

    It literally takes seconds for 2 rabbits to successfully breed. They should not be allowed together at all. If a pen wall is used to separate them, that won't guarantee they won't breed as males have been known to impregnate a female through a "fence." So be sure they are separated well. Perhaps...

    I’m back..Rehoming?

    Are you looking to rehome them (in which case this thread should be moved to the "Rescue Me" forum) or are you still trying to decide whether or not to rehome them?

    Possibility of failed bonding?

    If you can return the baby, I would suggest doing so. It is not advised to attempt to bond a baby with an adult. Even if they happened to get along, it would, at best, only last until her hormones kick in. Then anything can happen. As it is now, they already aren't getting along. That doesn't...

    Cleaning Messy Bums

    It is not usual for a rabbit to regularly have a messy bum. If they are able to "sit in their pee" and not due to a health reason, then the enclosure is not setup properly. Rabbits are very clean and will groom themselves. If they are unable to keep themselves clean (and isn't because they are...

    How to switch bunnies to leafy greens

    How much (cup measurement) of the pellets do they get each day? Some will choose the pellets over greens or even over hay. The pellets should be limited.

    Mrs.Flop around

    She sounds like a sweet bun! For roaming free, it is critical to bunny-proof. That means any places you don't want her to go must be blocked off. If one method doesn't work, you'll need to get creative to find another method. For blocking the underside of the couch, it would be helpful to...

    Handling rabbits that don't like to be picked up

    No need to pick them up to groom them. Just pet and/or brush them while they are lounging about. A slightly damp hand will remove loose fur just from petting. During a shed, your hand doesn't need to be damp. Just pet and "capture" loose hair between the length of your fingers.
