        In January I moved my bunnies from my enclosed porch to inside.
        this is when the bonding started 😊

         

        now that we are starting to get warmer weather and winter is over I thought about bringing them on the porch after I have thoroughly cleaned it for a couple hours to run and get fresh air.

        would this effect their bond? The area I brought them into inside was a neutral area whereas the porch was not

         

        any thoughts or suggestions?

          Can you give a bit more info on what you have done to bond them? Have they been living together 24/7 inside? If they have been living together 24/7 and appear to be fully bonded inside then you should be able to move them without issues.

            I brought them into a neutral setting and slowly got them together while supervised. It took about 2 weeks for the bonding process to work. They were giving each other baths. Then they started laying and cuddling together. They are together till night time. Their cages are right against each other and they go in their cages only when w go to bed. That way they don’t start playing and wake up my household.

              Gotcha! I would recommend transitioning them to living together 24/7 before attempting to move them to a non-neutral location. You’ll want to at least be within earshot the first 2 nights so you can hear if a fight breaks out. Bonded bunnies should be together all the time, so modifying their cages so they can be completely together would be best.

                  I understand. The only problem is that my husband doesn’t want to be woken up in the night because he has a job that requires lots of thinking. And my daughter’s room is right there.

                  I will see what I can come up with

                   

                  thank you

                  They really shouldn’t make that much more noise than they would individually. If one cage isn’t big enough for both of them, could you attach an x-pen to one of them to give them a bit more space?

                  Could you remove any “noisy” toys for the night and give them more quiet things to chew?

                    I can definitely give it a try 😊 I would try it on a Friday night that way if my husband wakes up he could sleep in.

                    would 1 litter box be enough?

                      You can give them 1 large litter box or two. My buns have two but they often just sit in the same one together. 🙂
