    It sounds like he is having issues manipulating hay, so it may be dental. If he can't pick it up, he can't chew it - but he's finding more solid things easier. Have you tried a softer or a stalkier...

    I've used depocillin injections long term up to daily in some cases of jaw abscesses in rabbits, so there is certainly room to manouvre.

    They already know their way round their area, so should be fine if it just stays the same. With cataracts, they will gradually lose some vision but I would expect them to cope just fine.

    It does look more like urine to me. If you dip some white tissue in it, is it red or orange? Blood would be red.

    I remove the covers and hide them under the hay so they are much less accessible. Using 2 together rather than 1 maintains the heat better in the worst of the winter.

    I would suggest he is a hormonal un-neutered bunny.
    Or he is guarding his home / hutch if he growls when you go near, in which case I would suggest he needs more space.
    Are you sure he is a boy?

    It sounds like you have some healthy, well socialised bunnies. Keep up with the hay / grass eating - it's the best habit they can have. For 'treats', you coud just hand feed part of their pellet...

    Yes - get them booked in for neutering. Humping is pretty normal behaviour, but you don't want it to escalate to fight which breaks the bond.
