How do they get on? Are they more likely to fall out than girls. Anything you can tell me would be great :wave:

I do but they are brothers so I'm not sure that counts :lol:

They love each other to bits.

That's lovely and gives me a positive spin on two males together thank you :love:

As long as they are both neutered then they may bond OK. I have always found bonding two compatible (personality wise) neutered males the easiest, easier than M/F bonds and MUCH easier than F/F bonds.

Thank you Jane, they are already bonded but not neutered yet ;) xxx

I have 2 boys... living with a girl. So easy to bond. :love: Boys are much easier to bond than 2 females in my opinion! Well that's just my experience anyway. :lol:

Theo, Tinkerbell and Hector. The black dutch Hector had also lived with another one of my boys Mischief in a trio with Tinkerbell but sadly Mischief passed away. :( Also before I took on Hector, Mischief lived with Tinkerbell and another boy, Jasper also at the bridge. :( So I've had 3 trios, all with 2 boys and a girl so 2 boys should be easy. :p

I have a group of 6 boys, trio of boys and a pair of boys :) They get along just fine :)

Eta I also think they bond more easily and are more laid back.

I have two pairs of two boys (ie different pairs) as well as several trios of boysx2 and girl x1 and fours and above with mixtures.

Of the x2 pairs of boys they are both totally loved up and adoring of each other!!

Dill and Willow were originally a pair and were brothers. They fell out and wewre rebonded a couple of times but then did too much damage and were split up permanently.

I have had several male trios and pairs and they've got on fine. Way easier than females who will sometimes tolerate each other but never really bond (only talking from my experience of a big mixed group, not generally). Some of my boys have even chosen their own male partner despite there being single available females around! :shock:

We have two brothers and they are inseparable. They are just over 1yr old but have only just been neutered (when we got them). They love each other to bits:love:

I have two pairs of bonded boys. One pair , Willow and Clover are brothers, neutered and been together since birth, they get on just fine so I'm not sure if that counts really. My other pair Nori and Merri are not brothers, they were previously bonded to girls and since widowed. Both have neutered years ago and were bonded when they were 8&7 last year. So they both mellowed considerably. Well Nori has been mellow from day one but Merri was a grump. But they love each other and get one very well. They share food ok and snuggle and groom a lot. It was a slow free range bond with lots of supervision and at first they just tolerated each other but now they are like brothers. Both my pairs don't seem to mount each other either but there is definitely affection.

Years before I had my bonded boys I had two pairs of bonded girls, sisters and they fought like devils, even after neutering things didn't simmer down too much so i had to separate them in the end. So in my experience its been a lot easier with boys :D


ETA Nori and Merri are in the top left pic (Dutch and English cross) of my sig and the next pic beside them is of Willow and Clover (Chinchilla and Dutch). You can see how much they love each other :love:

I have a pair of bonded males.

It can be a bit fractus at times. They have the odd argument. But i find a quick time out from each other works (one in hutch, one in run for 20 minutes). They are then all loved up again and you'd think they'd not seen each other for years. I was going to sperate them but when they are apart they pine for each other and won't eat.

It's the old they can't live together but can't live apart either. Just wish they'd sort it out.

When I tried a quad bond it was the boys that were the easiest. They adored each other...

My two boys are brothers but sadly don't get along. Strangely enough they do get along if they have a divider in between. They clean each other and sit with their foreheads touching. I wish they could live together but each time I've tried it ends up with a big fight and fur flying everywhere. They are both neutered.

Now perhaps, it is because they were separated for 4 years and maybe if I had kept them together since birth they would have been ok?
But Jack was adopted by my friend and then she gave him back to me after 4 years. Billie was really angry when Jack first came here because he had always been a single bunny.

But now like I said they do sleep together but there has to be a divider in between. :wave:

My friend has a pair of entire males introduced at different times. I don't know how she did it, but they have been together nearly 4 years and are very much in love. One is 5 and the other is 4.

In my opinion, it's always easy to bond female and male. As long as you have the male first. I tried it the other way round before and the female wasnt having any of it:lol::lol: Getting a male and a male is good, but if they haven't been together since birth and are not neutered then they may fight. Best to get them both neutered or get brothers :D:D

My two boys are more loved up than my male female pairs.

I'm looking at bonding my two boys this summer, they share a run so hoping this will help them bond as they already know each other.
