At the moment we have one pair or two females, and one group of four (two male, two female). The biggest group we've had in the past was 5, with only one male in the mix. I know there are people on here who have bonded way bigger groups than that though.

How did you manage to accomplish that :shock: I cannot get my boys and girls to accept one another at all. It would make my life so much easier if they all got along :rolleyes:

I'm not really sure - my buns are loose. My frenchie was huge so I wouldn't have kept her in a hutch.

Also - your other buns are really small, so you might have to check out the frenchie's temperment before you bond in a group. A frenchie's back legs are powerful & a thump or a hump could be fatal to a tiny bun. That said, I have a very large laid-back NZ white bonded to a tiny Lionhead, & my Frenchie lived in my original group of tiny buns (a bonded 13), so it can work out ok:D

We have a group of 5. 2 does, 3 bucks who live together in a shed plus aviary run attached.
I'd definitely keep a group if it involved a frenchie or other large breed in a shed/run combo.
I also have a single doe, a buck and doe pair and a pair of does that I'm going to try bonding as a group of5 soon.
I'm very nervous about it!!!

I have a trio, a brother and sister (look like road side buns) and a girly lop all bonded. I am considering rescuing another boy lop and bonding them all together :shock: Well if I could find somewhere close to me that has one .

I've got 3 groups of 3. at the mo there is 3 neutered boys, 3 girls (neutered mum and 2 girl daughters) and 3 un-neutered boys. I know the boys and girls will get on once everyone is neutered.
