A female and male will mate and produce babies unless they are neutered. So if you want a female, and your bro gets a male, you'll have to have separate accommodation for quite a while, so more money spent on accommodation. If you get two of the same sex, then you can keep them together and get them neutered together.

2 un-neutered males cannot be kept together- they will fight! 2 females will probably do the 2. One male, one female WILL have babies.

I know its been said a million times before but I really would get them from a rescue that are already neutered and bonded for you. It will save you alot of money and stress!

I meant do the same! Hands typing faster than my brain is working today!

I would never risk putting two males together, its not worth it. I had two un-neutered males who broke out and got together and within seconds they were locked on fighting.

The only way you can get two males together is if you get them as babies and neuter as soon as hormones kick in, or keep them separate and neuter them, then bond them after 6 weeks when their hormones have died down.

If you are getting adoptions from Pets at Home I don't suppose you will know what sex you are getting until you go in the store once your accomodation is finished.

Also, at our Pets at Home they usually only have single rabbits for adoption not a bonded pair that have come in together. So you would then have to wait until another one is available for adoption and then try and bond them and what would happen if they did not get along?

Either way, it's likely you will need 2 hutches for a while (or forever if the bonding didn't work).

Ash whether you get 2 males, 2 females or 1 male & 1 female - it really is a priority that they are neutered / speyed if they are to live together. What ever combination - they will almost always end up fighting as their hormones start to rage - if not breeding (male / female) :?

It is better all round for you & for the bunsters if they are neutered / speyed - in all honesty you would be better to take everyone's advice on here & get a pair from a rescue that are already neutered / speyed & bonded. Otherwise your parents will have to pay for the ops or you will potentially end up with very unhappy & potentially injured bunnies. I don't want to put you off, as owning bunnies is wonderful, but please, please make sure you know what you are getting yourself into & ensure you are able to do the right thing by them :?

2 cadges?? im not bonding them, we are going to get the rspca to do them for us, they do do it up my way i think. is it easy to bond at a young age? x

Why cant you get one from rescue?
Have you talked to your mum about it? That it works out cheaper... as they have already have been neutered and their vac....? All you have to do is make a donation?

two males will fight... unless they are babies and havent grown their... 'you know whats down below' and have come from a big litter so they are used to other buns company....
Two females are the same... until they reach maturaty....
Its best to have them neutered....

Sometimes it doesn't work out (both rabbits will need to be neutered before bonding takes place, so you'll need two cages whilst they recover from the operations). Some rabbits just never bond (some on here haven't, however hard they try) so you may have to have two separate cages for life.

If you are going to use the RSPCA for bonding why not just get 2 already bonded rabbits from them?

And yes, you will need 2 hutches as I'm sure the RSPCA will have a waiting list for their bonding service. Plus, they can't go together until they are neutered if you end up with a male and female.

it varies from different places you go to... youll have to ask at the rescues :)

Snowberry

I am not sure the RSPCA do bonding to be honest. The ones round here dont anyways. If I were you I would search on www.rabbitrehome.org.uk for pair of bunnies that you like and then ask your mum. If you ask nicely on here usually someone will do a bunny run and bring them up to you if you cant travel.

I know you're trying your best & I know how hard it is when you are trying to do your best. Would it help if you printed off some info from the forum & you gave it your mam to read & explained how you are trying to be sensible for everyone involved - you, your mam & dad, as well as being responsible for the bunnies? :) Plus make sure you tell her all about the research you've been doing? There's not many youngsters that would do the amount of research you've done - so I hope she would be dead pleased with you :D

That sounds great Ash, keep persuading her :D its alot easier to get two bonded and neutured buns :D its great having a husband and wifey together there just too cute snuggling up :)

There are lots of bonded buns on that site, just take alook and pick out ones you like and speak to your parent/s about them...
Im sure if its a rescue run by people on here im sure they will be more than happy to do a bunny run so the buns get to you if you cant travel to get them :)
:wave::wave:


Also im sure the rspca will have bonded buns if they do local bonding... :roll:

If you phone them up and ask if they have any already bonded buns in... or have buns in not bonded and if they can bond them for you, im sure they will give you some information and youll be able to go down and take a look? :love:
Thats a very good option xx Especially if its local to you.

If its local to you i would personally get them from the rspca :) Yes, you will have to pay a little more money upfront, but they will already be vaccinated and neutered and bonded saving you more money in the near future :)

Good luck :) xXx

Hi, Just adding my little bit to this thread, I do agree with the others. I have 2 pairs - one pair is nearly a year old, male and female. The male has been neutered and the female hasn't yet. Whilst this 'spring fever' is happening I have noticed that the female is far worse than the male .....
