Yeah that's what I was thinking xxThen it might be possible Robbie is female and experiencing a false pregnancy. If I recall, female rabbits who have not been spayed and reach a certain age tend to go through this when not mated.
I know how to tell the different genders but I dont think he will let me .I have never seen any of my three boys behave like girls, even before being neutered. So i don't think it's the case that Robbie was fixed.
You should get a rabbit savvy vet's opinion, or perhaps if Robbie is willing to let you snag a pic of that underbelly, then maybe one of us could help identify..
Okay I will ask my dad to help .Well, you can always try different options to take a peek, and maybe ask family for help too.
Storm wouldn't let us look either, but we somehow managed as we found out that he's a good chunk more docile when gently rolled onto his side.
Okay thank you !The nesting can mean Robbie is a girl and having a false pregnancy if there is no chance that 'she' was with one of the other rabbits and became pregnant. Or it could be Robbie is in fact a buck just experiencing spring fever and showing nesting behavior as well. Yes, in rare instances some bucks have been known to build a nest.
The biting, could have to do with spring fever and an upsurge of hormones causing nesting and increased hormonal behaviors in rabbits. Even spayed/neutered rabbits can experience this. Or it could be you had one of the other rabbits smell on your hands and this upset Robbie for some reason. Or it could be a combination of spring fever and the smell of another rabbit. Or it could be Robbie got scared or startled by something and he lashed out and bit you before he realized it was you.
He did it in his litter box and a corner I'm his pen which I cleaned . SorryDoesn't look like a lot changed, I doubt that would upset - him?
Do you have a picture of the nest, would be interesting if it's a full fledged affair or a half hearted attempt.
