Hiya :)

Well not been on here for a while and now got 8 bunnies :) latest two is Kizzy and Parsley who have been together approx 5weeks, they seem to be getting on ok, it has taken a while for them to decide they like each other and now Kizzy will sit for ages grooming her on the head/eyes/ears etc but i have noticed when i put the food in and kizzy gets in way parsley will nip his bum, or if i start stroking them and talking to them she sometimes sits happily but other times nips kizzys bum.

Im just concerned as i want them to be happy and they seem ok, still not sitting cuddling in etc but they do seem happy hopping around, kizzy grooming her etc, i just dont want kizzy to be unhappy and not sure what this bum nipping is :?.

any help appreciated.

It's just a way of Parsley saying that she's in charge! Our boy Ant often does it to Hoops and Trix! Bossy bunnies! :lol:

Ok thank you :). Was just concerned she may have been bullying him a bit and i was just letting it happen.

Yea they are all paired up now. No more bunnies for me :). Will get pictures of them for you all later :)

Missed you all too :D:wave: xx
