Hi, I noticed my male rabbit (pistachio) seemed bored and wouldn’t play with his toys so I did research and found out he would be happier with a friend. I adopted a female rabbit (hazel) who is around the same age and kept them separated by a gate so they could still see each other. My male rabbit kept nipping her through the gate but apparently thats just how they play. He also began chewing and playing with his toys more so I thought he was happier with her there. Its been a few days so today I tried letting them meet outside of the enclosure by putting them on opposite sides of the living room. My male bunny immediately began chasing the female around very fast and I thought he was going to hurt her so I put him back in the enclosure. I was just wondering if this behaviour is normal? Are they playing or fighting? I really do not want to chance my male rabbit hurting my female rabbit. I got a video of when they first met but couldn’t get the rest because unfortunately I panicked. I am also very new to this website so I apologize if I wrote this in the wrong place.
