Hi all, I want to get another pair of bonded rabbits. My plan is to keep them separate from Emmi and Emit but have the expens side by side and add wire to the fence so they can’t bite each other through the gaps. My questions are..
1. Is that ok to do?
2. Can adding more rabbits to the home cause problems with the rabbits I have now?
3.they are purebred bonded netherland dwarfs, how to handle them?
4. How much to feed them (pellets,veggies, etc.)?
4. Any advice?

If a bonded pair of rabbits is in proximity to another bonded pair of rabbits (or any other rabbit), it always has the potential to upset (or break) the existing bond. If the two pairs were kept in totally separate areas of the home, it may not be a problem (provided people don't have the scent of one pair on them when visiting the other pair). There is the off chance that all four will get along, but that would only happen if all four (or at least 3) were completely subservient and docile. It's also possible that just 3 will decide to get along, leaving the fourth all alone.

So if you are concerned about a possible upset between the bonded pair you already have, then, yes, there is a real risk that it will upset their bond. You'll have to decide what your comfort level is with these possible outcomes.

I’ve done the exact same thing before lol!😆 this works great for me as long as they both can see and snuggle up at each other still
