I have two rabbits, brother (K) and sister (R)! K was sniffing around Rs bum and she didn't like that, then they ran around for a bit sniffing(?) eachothers bums. After about a minute of this I then see R eating her soft poops and K was trying to take these from her mouth and then was at her bum again!!

They often 'fight' over food like this, taking it straight from eachothers mouths but I have never seen them do this with soft poo. As far as I can tell K produces enough of his own soft poop, I even saw him eating it this morning. Has anyone had a similar experience and can help explain it to me?

You should separate them now even if you fix him tomorrow he will still be able to get his sister pregnant as they stay fertile up to 6 weeks after neutering so they should stay separated until his hormones gone completely
