It's very difficult to know what the problem is. Are they outdoors or indoors?

A vet would be a good idea.

I would also recommend keeping them inside. Their are many dangers outside including predators, disease, hot and cold weather, and it is hard to tell if they are ill. Are you able to bring them inside where it is safe.

yes i could bring them inside easily i will do that straight away, i have just been back out to them and let them play in the long run and they have just attacked each other very visiously so even though they have been castrated would you recommend separating them, lady who i got them off said never seperate them with them being brothers but cant think of any other way.

I definitely would separate them if they are fighting. It's simply not true that siblings will always get along - many siblings fight when they reach puberty, even after castration. It's possible one of them injured the other and that can be serious. So definitely take them to the vet to check for injuries, bring them inside, and separate them.

Once the vet has determined they are healthy then you are going to have to go through the process or rebonding them.

Please do! We can also help you with advice on rebonding them once you are ready to do that - you can post your progress or concerns in our Bonding Section.
