Depends on the male's temperment, but more than likely he would hump her constantly untiul she was miserable or fought back

5 isn't that old? Can you keep him in for 2-3 days after his neuter - or give him a heat pad?

well thing is he may annoy your female by wanting to hump too much. have you asked your vet to see what they think of deplumming him. by the way whats a ring?

I don't know anything about rings - is that the year 04 so he's 5 / 6? I know some rescues have had older buns neutered without a prob.

I'd worry that he'd harrass the female so I guess it depends on what his behaviour is like.

I think the OP means a BRC ring, its used in showing.

If a bun comes from a BRC registered breeder, it is "rung" - has a ring round it's leg with breeder details & year on:D

I'm not sure all BRC breeders ring pet bunnies. I thought the ring was for showing and you can only show if the ring is registered in your name and you are a member of the BRC?

Actually I misplaced my engagement ring when cleaning the buns out Mon. Fell off my finger when hands were cold so you might not be far off the mark there! I did check the hutches tho!
