Please separate your rabbits immediately and keep them separate. You cannot bond unneutered male rabbits. They are too hormonal and will end up fighting, possibly resulting in very serious injury or even death. It's not unheard of for unneutered male rabbits to attempt to eviscerate each other. It is dangerous to even try to put them together.

If you want to attempt to bond them when the baby is old enough to get neutered, get both neutered, wait, 6-8 weeks for the hormones to fade, then go through the proper bonding process. This gives you the best chance at a bond succeeding, but even then it's not a guarantee. Rabbits can be very particular about who they like. It's all about compatible personalities.
