    Do bonded bunnies do better living in smaller spaces? For example, if they lived in a huge room are they more likely to chase and fight?

    I've always bonded in a big area and it usually takes 3 days unless they like one another straight off. Or if the fight then I don't carry on. In almost all of my bonds the boy chased the girl.

    There's also the benefit of a large space in that if there is any chasing there is a chance for the chased rabbit to move away and not be cornered. The large space worked for my two, as when Tethra started to chase Tui she just ran away and after a while he got fed up trying It's also not always aggression that causes chasing, sometimes it seems it's just fun. Tui was actually approaching Tethra, tapping him on the nose and then running away binkying

    I used a small space - but there is benefits to both large and small. I use small due to it being easier to intervene, but also Luna is blind. so in a huge space she may not even be aware Orion is there, suddenly a strange rabbit is bounding up to her, she attacks. so I think mine is more of a special and different case as I had to work around Luna and your average rabbit

    Do you mean once the bunnies are actually bonded?

    I always find more space the better x

    Once bond is established, just wondering if a big space could encourage a fight or a chase
