bunnies? I put the girls in the run together yesterday (they have been apart for 4 weeks) and they just chased each other trying to hump:cry: so obviously i need to do this differently

Isn't humping just a sign of them asserting their heirachy again to find out who is top bunny?

Humping and chasing is fine. As above they are establishing a hierarchy which is perfectly normal. Frankie didn't leave fidget alone when i first put them together but eventually Fidget submitted and Frankie became dominant and that was that, best of friends ever since!

Are they actually fighting or just chasing? A bit of fur pulling is ok but if there are any wounds from biting then perhaps it is better to separate - ONLY for a few minutes until they calm down and try again.
