I remember years ago having a male rabbit who rubbed his chin on pretty much everything in the house.
I have another male bun,got him last friday and he has been out and about but i have noticed he doesnt chin things?? chews dvds and bits and pieces but no chinning at all....does it depend on the bun? is it a comfort thing?? still kind of getting used to having a bun in the house again :)
Funny to watch him chase my cat though lol....

Badger took some time before he scent marked things in our house. Your old rabbit was saying "this is mine" to everything he marked. Your new bun may start it as his confidence grows. but it's nothing to worry about either way.

Soon enough though, I'm sure you'll be surrounded by furniture that's his! :lol:

That's so sweet :) The bond with a bun is incredible isn't it. You've got so many happy days ahead!

By the way, I'm in Horsham :wave: We are planning a south east meet up in Guilford soon. Check out the thread (somewhere!).

They get less terrotorial and so yes it could ease up if you get him neutered early enough.

My own bun was neutered at 2, and whilst it hasnt stopped he doesnt do it nearly as much.

edit: when let out of his cage in the morning he used to 'do the rounds' chinning everything (including me!) and scattering a few poops. Now hardly any scattered poops and he only chins throughout the day if he thinks something doesnt smell enough of him.
