      Btw, thanks to everyone who welcomed me last time. I’ll definitley get pictures whenever i get batteries for my camera. lol

       

      Anyway, we decided to pick up a bunny friend for Lily. We brought her with us to the park, and the woman from the rescue brought about five rabbits for us to choose from. Lily pretty much got along with all of them, but seemed to like George the best. She humped him a little, like she did with all the rest, but she seemed to like laying down with him the most. The woman told me he’d probably be the best to get out of the ones she had to offer. Well, I got them home and I tried the neutral space thing I’ve read about, and it seems like he’s getting really mad whenever she trys to hump him. So, they nipped at each other a bit. Now, even if she tries to just sniff his face he’ll start fighting with her and the fur flies. I’ve had to pull them apart a few times now because it was getting really heated, and I’ve got bitten because I was in the way.

      I’ve put there pins right next to each other, and they seem to tolerate each other now.. I haven’t tried to put them together since the bite. Is there anything else I should do to help them along? Any tips?

      They’re both fixed. She’s about a year old, and he’s maybe three.

      the neutral area in the house might not be as neutral as you think. it’s possible she still recognizes it as her turf. females are usually more territorial than boys, so it is more difficult to bring a boy home to a girl. you want to start with a very small area, no bigger than the size of an xpen so they cannot avoid each other for long periods of time. have a couple litterboxes and some hay or veggies available. a water bottle is great to squirt the nipping bun before things get out of hand.

      this is an article from HRN that i read practically everyday when i was bonding my two. http://www.rabbitnetwork.org/articles/bond.shtml

      That helped me out so so so much. Thank you. :]

       

      & You were right, I guess it wasn’t very neutral. We took them to our bathroom and they seemed to really really like each other for once.
