So I have 4 rabbits in total, Cookie was my last rabbit to get fixed which happend about a month ago now, So all my rabbits are now fixed.  I would like to bond my rabbits. Into at lest 2 bonded pairs or what ever they decide of course. It would be cool if all 4 of them got along but I think that would be pushing it. I want to bond them so they can have more out of the cage time as well as someone to keep them company when We are away.

 When Scamper is out for his play time over the past couple of weeks. He has decided that he like to lay by Cookies cage.  Sometime agains it, somtimes his face up agains the cage.  Cookie always comes over to see him, She chews on the bars and he puts his head against the bars, Scamper seems to think she is grooming him. I have also watched cookie do bunny flops right beside scamper and practally rolls on her back.

So do you guys think this could be bunny love???....or at lest a friendship starting?????....

Oh, very precious! Definite interest! And it looks like they are asking each other to groom each other. Do either of them I think it would definitely be worth starting these two into the bonding process.

Even if they get along here be sure to start them out in a neutral territory. Though, from what you are describing it sounds positive, but sometimes bunnies will flop to show contentment and trust, they can also do so near each other to show the other that this is their territory. So it's better to be safe and just start the bonding but somewhere neutral.

Good luck and keep us updated!

Yeah, Maryann and Dono used to be the best pals as long as there were bars between them. But once they got free, Maryann became the unholy terror that are Dutch buns.


My bonding quest with Maryann - Read about a less than easy bonding with two buns - but they did bond!

I well keep everyone up todate on what is happening with bonding. But its going to be another couple of weeks before we start, my boyfriend is going to be starting a new job on Tuesday so we want to get use to a new schedual. Its not going to effect the rabbits, just my boyfriend is going from working over nights to working days. So it well be an adjustment for us.

So I was thinking to start bonding in either a netrual place, or I was thinking about taking them for a car ride....=-)... I have a cage I can use...I just need something to divided them so they can learn to trust each other, but stop any fighingh if any accures.

Not sure yet....any thoughs?
