I am reintroducing my 2 buns. They are 15 months old, neutered 6 months ago, original attempts failed. I think I may have tried too soon after neutering and they tornadoed. They have lived separately now since Jan 1. We have been laying them next to each other for about a week on a bed in a neutral room, with an oven rack between them to allow for smells, but we didn't allow them to freely react. We've just pet them and they seem okay. They've looked at each other at times, but thats it. Next step I could use some advice. I realize there are various ways to approach, but I don't want to jeopardize my attempts with a fight which was my initial failure. I am planning to set up a pen on the floor. Should I use a divider first? and see what they do? Or should we let them be able to freely interact and just break up anything? I see a lot of videos that there are boxes and litter boxes set up - they look like they are done in a barn or outbuilding somewhere. I am afraid to have a box or hiding spot because that could cause a face bite and in that small space, I can't get to them quick. I also have a brand new rather large cage that is being preserved as their new home, neither has seen.....I could try them in there instead of an open "pen" . I could set them up the way I had them before their separation, each in own cage right next to each other, but 1 rabbit has had his cage in that spot the whole time, and I don't think bringing the other cage back next to him would go over well. Any thoughts? Should I keep them laying next to each other longer before I go to next step, they get antsy wanting to explore more on the bed.
