Hi everyone, been searching around this forum for an answer to my problem, but there seems to be several different possible answers. I thought i would join and post my problem, to see if anyone can explain for me.
I am a novice rabbit keeper, i have always been interested in them but have never had them previously. I bought one male albino rabbit, when i got him he was just a tiny little thing. A couple of months later he was getting lonely, so i decided to buy another female albino rabbit, she also was very very small when i got her, and the male rabbit was a lot bigger than her.
I used a guide i found on the internet on how to bond them, and everything went fine. They have been living together ever since, and the female rabbit is probably a bit bigger than the male rabbit now. The male rabbit is probably about 9 months old, and the female rabbit about 7-8 months old.
They have not been spayed/neutered yet, as i would like the female to have a litter of bunnies.
They have ALWAYS got on well, they play together, sleep snug up together, eat and drink together. When i first put them together, the male rabbit would always try to hump the female rabbit, but then a few weeks later that just stopped, and there has been no humping until now.
The female rabbit is constantly humping the back of the male rabbit, he then runs to the other side of the run, leaving the female rabbit clueless. The female rabbit will then try it again, and he just runs away again. She is always sniffing away at his tail/bum area too. But then they will stop it for a while... they will snug and lick each other and eat together... but then she will start trying to hump him again.... and hes having none of it. They dont appear to be fighting or anything...
Im confused, what can it be?
