    Default How do you feed bonded buns pellets?

    I have bonded Sooty and Oreo today but need to give them some pellets - Do I use a bowl or just scatter them - both get VERY excited over pellets and I dont want them to fight over them!

    I think newly bonded I would just scatter them to be safe ?

    Can't you place down two bowls, one in front of each bun at the same time and make sure there's a little extra food, to prevent a fight over it?

    What time did you start?
    I normally bond in summer cos you can get up at sunrise and sit in the garden with the bunnies all day, it doesn't feel like such hard work then

    I think i've finally got feeding sussed! My two have been bonded for four months now and Ollie is a complete pelletmonster! He will eat about three or four pellets at a time while Amber will daintily eat one at a time in a ladylike fashion. I did hand feed them up until three weeks ago so i knew who was getting what but recently they have started to scoff at the same pace (sort of) and will eat from seperate bowls side by side. I just watch and make sure Ollie doesn't pinch many of Amber's pellets

    My pair have a cat dish with two depressions, yet they feed out of the same bowl.

    As i have just (fingers crossed it stays this way) bonded a trio, I thought I'd put an extra bowl down just in case but all three shoved their heads into the same dish again

    You could try a bowl and if there are any signs of a problem take it out and scatter feed. Just keep doing this until they both accept the bowl I would say

    None of mine have bowls. I dont really see the point in them. I just put a small pile of pellets on the floor in their room as they eat them all straight away anyways.
