    Default I知 bonding a trio again!

    I may keep them in until Friday as a final attempt. I知 off work weds and could just keep them on separate sides of the pen whilst I知 at work. After spending so much time, I hate to throw in the towel

    Ok about time I updated this thread!!

    After 2 failed attempts, I decided to give bonding one final go and whilst I can't hand on heart say I have bonded the bunnies and that they're best of friends, I can say we are getting there slowly but surely. I started off by putting them in a carrier and taking them on a fair few car rides. In this situation they壇 snuggle up together so this was how I started trying to get them to trust each other. I then decided to try bond them in a tiny indoor cage and my gosh it was hard on my heart keeping them locked in there. I had them in my bedroom though rather than taking over the bathroom so it meant I could bond for longer. As the cage was small it meant they couldn't run away and were forced to interact. Because of this, fighting did not last long at all. I had the bunnies in my room for about 2 weeks and there was a lot of grooming between Primrose and Robin and then I caught on camera one miracle event where Bertie washed Robin's head. I literally thought I was dreaming, this was big as Bertie seemed to hate Robin. Then after this, it calmed down, no fighting but no snuggling either, just ignoring each other. Anyway I decided as there was no progression, to just move them outside before it got too cold and they've been out for way over a month now. At first they just had access to the shed but now they have the whole set up.

    Robin is definitely the submissive one. Bertie appears to be boss boy although I think Primrose is leader of the group. All 3 will happily hop about in each others company and eat food together etc but every now and again Bertie will nip Robin and fur pull. Robin however does not fight back and just runs away so I have not split them up. That's the current situation. They live together but occasionally Bertie puts Robin in his place. I'm hoping through time this will stop and they'll start to display normal bonded bunny behaviour eg. snuggling up and grooming each other. For now though I'm just so happy that they are together!! I don't feel scared to leave them and it's really nice to be able to have them together. Here's some pics!















    A few from bonding inside, hated having them in such a tiny cage!

    Yes definitely! Didn't expect it though as he happily shared her with Reuben before! Thank you, I would have hated to send him back to the rescue so wanted to try everything. Looks to be getting there now so I'm glad I persevered
