    I've got over my fear now I know the gloves work lol... It's just the fear of her hurting bleu. I would love someone to bond them but I think they would say they are a lost cause I'm not willing to give up because I really really don't want anymore buns and I can't stand the thought of these being on their own. Especially fleur locked in our bedroom all day.

    I would go for a bigger space with lots and lots of piles of food. Glad the gloves helped.

    Not that I am any kind of expert.

    I'm so sad to read the update. It must be so frustrating and disheartening. However, the fact that you still want to persevere and believe there's a root cause behind it makes me feel and hope you'll get to the bottom of it all. As well as food, is it possible to distract them with fuss and attention, too?

    I'm going for the bigger space when they are ok with each other without the mesh on the divide. I tried mountains of food last night lol... I just kept putting it in when they fought. Here's what they are in now. http://imgur.com/ubb73pV

    I tried the fuss but they were just dodging me lol.. I am just going to have to be patient i think. I really don't want them to be lonely buns and it's just not possible for me to exceed 13. I'm just going to have to keep them in this but I will have to let them out one at a time but still in the same room soon. I feel really cruel with how small this is.

    Awww sweet big bunnies

    A small space isn't forever. When I bonded my quad a few weeks back they were in a small space and they just did nothing but all sit together in the litter tray. I was really surprised they didn't argue with me about being free, as none of them had ever been cooped up whilst living here ... I could see they were very bored though.

    I'm really sorry to read that this is proving to be a tough bond I'm really hoping your perseverance pays pays off.

    Just to give you a bit of encouragement, when my buns had been bonded for about three months they unexpectedly started fighting. After a few days apart I rebonded them from scratch. The first night was just awful. They constantly went for each other. I aged about a hundred years in one night! Eventually they calmed down and were successfully rebonded. So don't give up hope!

    Thanks for that, I think I needed the encouragement lol.. They both settled to the small space and are now sat side by side with the divide still meshed. I have to finish daisys shed today so have put a mesh roof on.
    The fighting through the mesh has stopped about 3am so I MIGHT remove the double mesh on the divide if things continue.
    Hubby took over at 8am so I've had a couple of hours sleep so I can stay awake tonight if i remove the mesh.
    I really don't understand them, they copy each other like a bonded pair, washing when the other washes. Even copying the position they lie in. Funny bunnys

    I'm glad to hear they are appearing to settle in the presence of one another. They do sound like a funny old pair (though I know neither are actually old!) I really really hope they can find common ground and soon, for your sake as well as theirs!
