Hi, my house bunny is an intact buck, 3 1/2 years old, about 10lbs, and a a free range house bunny for 2 years now. Very laid back dude, never started a fight and always evaded attacks by shrew does or bucklings coming of age. He doesn't have a cage or so, a catflap so he can go outside when he wants. No, neutering him is not an option. But imho he's rather lonely, he's my pet but that's not really a relationship that would satisfy a rabbits social needs, I reckon. So I'm planning to have one of his daughters, now 5 1/2 months, spayed and make her a house bunny too. I know there'll be some challanges, Herr Hase doesn't chew anything, no wood and no cables, and was housebroken from day one I took him in, but I had an intact female indoors for 8 months and she was Destructionbunny (grandmother of Dotty), 5 years later I still refer to her as Fury, almost killed me twice. Sooo... How do I get this over smoothly. The doe, Dotty (she's a broken, and two dots on her forehead were the only way to tell her apart from her sisters), now lives in a trio with her mother and grandmother. She's a nice girl, getting along with both. I started to assign her an own hutch by putting her there over night to get her used to being alone (to reduce stress post surgery), but letting her spend the rest of the day with the others. Works well. Any suggestions how I should introduce her to the buck? How much time does it need to dissipate hormones that make her smell like a fertile doe? Should I wait with introduction until she's completly healed up, or set up a pen where they can interact through bars? (Now, my buck interacts with the does through a gate, just large enought that the rabbits can put their heads through, lots of licking and cleaning and rabbit stuff). I guess he'll be a nuisance to her at the start, but I guess that will peter out. He didn't harrass any kits that slipped through the gate and joined him. So, if someone has experience with bonding a spayed cuddle bun to an intact buck I would appriciat any thoughts and advice.
