    It sounds like your female is a bit hormonal. How old are they?

    Are they brother and sister? Do you realise the female can get pregnant, so please separate now although it might be too late.

    No I doubt it. Were they together at the breeders? It is likely she might be pregnant even though you have not seen the boy doing anything, but what about during the night? The grunting is hormonal or she is fending him off because she is pregnant, when they are pregnant they will not usually let the male mate with them again.

    Yes, any change such as moving can affect a bond. In neutered rabbits, it will usually settle in time. However, as neither are neutered, it is likely that hormones are also coming into play, as tonibun says. At 6-7 months, Lilo is almost certainly pregnant, and that in conjunction with the move is probably affecting it.

    Overall though I was asking for a helpful response. It's a good thing I'm not a complete amateur because your doom and gloom response would have seen me running out the door.
    Tonibun is only saying what the rest of us here are thinking - she is almost certainly pregnant and if you donít separate them before the birth they will mate again immediately. Is that doom and gloom enough for you? You say you arenít a complete amateur and yet you have 7 month old un neutered siblings together. What kind of breeder did you get them from?

    Come back when the babies are born for advice if you genuinely want advice.
