Chloe (chloaster) has a big group, and I think Tinsel has quite a few, as well. Both have them free range in bunny friendly gardens most of the time. I tried to bond 4 bunnies, but the youngest got bullied too much. And even in the trio I have now, one is clearly lowewr in rank than the original pair. Maybe groups work better when the bunnies have a lot of free range space and can avoid each other.
Oh, Neil and Maria have a bigger group, too.

I have a 9, that is temporarily a 7 as one is ill, so I removed a partner to stay with him. I do intend to rebond if I can, as long as we find out why he keeps losing weight first, and as him & partner are now used to being in a lovely warm room, I can't put them in the open-windowed bun room for a bit:D

I think the space issue is important too - although my 9 are quite close & all pile on top of each other in the big litter tray (which is a cage base).

They were a 13 at one point - but they weren't as close as they are now, more split into 2 main groups & had their own hang-outs.

Thats loads! Do you just introduce them all 1 by 1?

Yes, my lot kind of split into two subgroups as well, with a few that migrate between groups. Definitely having loads of space helps, in the shed they sleep in as well as the garden, eg shelves/tunnels etc. Though at this time of year they tend to snuggle up more.

My friend as 28 they all live together but also have little groups within themselves, you have a group that like to be naughty, a group that like to lounge about, a group that think they are the Mafia and another group who can't decide what group they want to be in. They are all one big group at feeding times though:D
