    The setup is this: they have been living side by side in the garden, in two separate runs. They are let out during the daylight hours; they have their turns (half of the day Charlie, then the rest of...

    OK, I'll give it a go.
    So far, the routine is: the two rabbits approach each other. Furious competitive digging, side by side. Chasing. Then circling. Then all hell breaks loose and I have to...

    That amount of insulation and water proofing should be absolutely fine to keep them safe, in my opinion.

    Last winter we had one single occasion when, after several cold days, our elderly Harvey rabbit seemed to display signs of distress. So now as a rule of thumb if the overnight temperature dips below...

    How to stop it? Hmm, don't know.
    From what I have seen, female rabbits just have a very strong urge to dig (perhaps less so in winter). They live in warrens after all. Our Willow turned the entire...

    Thanks to all of you who sent us their condolences after the recent loss of our rabbit Willow.

    Now that Willow is gone, I have two males left, Charlie and Harvey. Charlie and Willow were a bonded...

    Willow

    I'm writing this in memory of our rabbit Willow who died today on the 21st of February.
    Willow was a 50th birthday present from my family, as I badly missed Toffy, our previous resident gardener who...

    Perhaps neutering would help, but maybe not. We have three rabbits and a cat; they normally ignore each other but I have seen Harvey rabbit getting annoyed with the cat (she was watching him too...

    My bonded pair behaves the same way, although they seem to display more variety as to which one is mounting which (and at which end, i.e. head or tail). Perhaps that's because the female is the...

    I don't know if it helps but I have a bonded pair, Willow and Charlie and even though Charlie was neutered donkeys years ago, he still occasionally humps Willow. It seems to come in phases. Lots of...

    Boredom? Probably not, it's their instinct to dig. They feel safe in their underground tunnels. All of our rabbits dig. The garden is now a set of tunnels.

    In my experience, 5 to 8 years sounds about right. Our second rabbit was about 3.5 kg and lived for 7 years. Obviously, just like with other animals, some live shorter and some longer.

    Yes, our second rabbit, Toffy, was spayed at about 4 years old. She recovered OK. That's about it.

    Sorry about the late reply - I think Harrison is probably just fine. My rabbits ate some crocuses too. That was last spring. They suffered no visible effect and they are still fine.

    Apple core

    Dear Lagomorphologists,

    Sometimes after I eat most of an apple, I carefully rinse the core and give it to the rabbits - something they absolutely love. Can you see any potential health issues with...

    Charlie

    Just found a picture of Charlie resting near a pile of old fence posts, taken last summer. One happy rabbit.
