I have two adorable buns that were recently bonded, and now the boy is excessively grooming around the female's eyes. It is not to the point of breaking her skin, but she has lost a lot of fur around her eyes, and I am starting to get worried that I can't make him stop. He gets very obssessed with grooming her eye, and even when I interfere, as soon as I back off he will start again.
The girl is a dwarf hotot, and pretty shy, and she flinches when he grooms to hard, but does not stop him, or give him a bat to make him realize he is doing something wrong. The male is pretty young (probably only about 5 or 6 months) and part cottontail.
I have tried adding lots of toys to the pen, giving exercise time (about 1 hour a day, and they have quite a large living space as well), trying to interfere to break the habit, & brought them both to the vet to make sure there were no medical issues.
It has been recommended that I introduce a third bunny, does anyone else have any other advice?
