Petey and Jessica have been bonded for about 2 years now, never had any issues when they were first put together, no chasing, fighting or anything, they had lived side by side with just a piece of wire between them for 6 months I took the wire awy and they just lay down next to each other, now 2 yrs on for some reason they have started the chasing and mounting and a little bit of biting (but not drawing blood) I dont know why they have suddenly started this but as they are not hurting each other i have just left them to it, they only do it every so often, very weird!!!!

As long as they are not having full on fights leave the together. Mounting and fur pulling is normal when they're bonding..

Why don't you try the squashed banana on the heads and then they'll groom each other. . I have a bonded three and thats what I used when I added my 3rd bun.

Dont let him sit on your lap ;)

As their owner you may find they are closer to you than you realised and could actually fight over you or because of you. Dont pet them either.

Rabbit fur is designed to pull out easily. When they mount they hold on which is why a tuft will fall out....it nothing to worry about.

well shes alredy grooming him

she isnt chasing him anymore
problem is, my bunnies arent allowed indoors, my dad will be home at 4 so they have 2 be out by four, and then im going to have to seperate them and wont the process start from scratch next time thye r together?

Yes my 2 can see the other buns but thats the way its always been, they have always had other bunnies living close by when they lived inside they were in 4ft square pens, petey and jess in 1 pen, then Twinkle and Louis living next door in the next pen and so on, now they are outside they have their own hutch and about 3ft across from them is Benji in his hutch with Emily on top in her hutch, Twinkle lived in her hutch on top of Petey and Jessies hutch.


As I said im not too worried about my two, a bit confused as to why they have started this after 2 years of peace and harmony but putting down to the change of moving outside. With your 2 I would monitor them but leave them to sort things out as long as no one is getting hurt.
