Hi Everyone,:wave:

I have recently got a female rabbit as a companion rabbit for willow (my male fixed rabbit) she has just be neatured about a week ago they seems to be getting on fine as i have a very large cage and have a divider in between for the time, they come out and play together and willow my male is alway humping here there is no agression at all but she sumtimes just sit there or runs off there hasnt been any fighting at all, my question was will he keep humping her constanly or will he calm down eventally? also another question is where can i put them in together as in when the hormone has gone from her body as he was fixed a long time ago.

Many Thanks

if you are onlyputting them together for play time, he will always hump her because hes saying hes the boss, and everytime u split them up/put back together, they have to start all over again if that makes sense.

if she has been done a week i wouldgive it one more week untiul she is healed, and then put them together in a neutral area and keep them together until u see them as bonded then put them in their crate/hutch together :D:D:D

yep, I would bond them properly. Pop them in a space where neither has been so they can establish a good relationship, take the divide out and give the hutch a good clean and then let them live together. There's lots of advice on bonding if you do a search. :)
