Oooh, go for it.
If it doesn't work out, you can keep them as two separate pairs. If it does work out... well, the bunnies have more friends to play with?

They are all very happy but would they be even happier in a group i would not want then unhappy with the change of dynamics in the group:?

I think youre either into groups or your not. I like pairs, and feels theyre easier to deal with. I always think of things like, would you need to put all 4 into a carrier to take to the vets? if one was ill and had to be separated, would you be able to put that one back into the group or be left with a single? If one wasnt eating or had sloppy poo, how would you tell?..... then again, I am a worrier and like the simple life but many people bond groups and it works fine!

You have some very good points though:?

I cant speak for others, but in my Trio I can tell which poos belong to who :oops:

I wouldnt say they were any happier than they were living in a pair though.

Dog sized carrier ;)

Ask Nicola (The Gaffer) she managed!

I think people with larger groups tend to take the sick rabbit and its closest friend to the vets.....but I think a foursome is still a bit intimate for that approach.

I too am happier with having bonded pairs rather than large groups. I dont thik *I* could adequately monitor the eating and pooping of everybun in a large group.

One thing to consider if you do attempt to bond your 2 pairs is that *if* there is a falling out it might actually be between the buns who were fine as a couple. So you'd end up not being able to have a group of 4 and one or both of your pairs may no longer get along

If it aint broke why fix it !! ;)
