Thread: Honking

  1. #1

    Default Honking

    Hi!
    My bunny Ralph is a neutered male and has started mounting and honking my female bun, the behaviour started last Sunday when we put a new living quarter in, is this normal behaviour while he is getting used to his new pad?
    The last time he did this was last year when Norma had E.C and had to be kept away and when they went to live back together he did it for a few days.

    Thanks

    A noise they can make hard to explain maybe search on YouTube? I've only had one rabbit that did it

    My buns are both neutered and spayed.

    Every now and then Archie decides it's time to circle Pip and honk. I love it, it's an adorable sound. I presume it's just a part of their bonding and hieracy.

    If you've given them more space, he's probably just telling her it's his. Is he top bun?

    Yeah shes been spayed since 7 months old and shes nearly 4 now.
    Honking is a little noise they make like a little honk haha!

    I have a feeling it could possibly be that they have a new home and loads more space and hes making sure she knows he is the boss it literally started the day they the new space! He seems to be calming a down a bit with it now so hopefully will be out of his system soon!

    I think you are right, he's just claiming the new home. He'll calm down soon.
