    Hmm... Maybe... My set up is two cages side by side in a huge dog run. George and Mildred are currently in the dog run with access to one cage and Charlie is in a smaller pen inside the run with access to the other cage so everyone is safely away from each other but can see/smell each other

    He's booked in for neutering on Thursday! Vet said under circumstances 16 weeks is old enough 😀

    That's good then - his testicles have obviously dropped.
    I do worry, however, about them still being able to see/smell each other whilst his hormones have settled. Perhaps I'm over-cautious.

    I too feel cautious now you've said it... Anyone else got strong feelings one way or the other on this?

    My preference (and I have had to do this recently) is to keep the single male completely away from any potential bondees. I kept him in a different room and never let any other rabbit enter.

    When the time came for bonding, they all went together into a neutral space.

    I personally wouldn't risk letting them smell one another, but you may have no option?

    I was hoping you would respond as I know you're a VEB.
