    Default Circles, love or need stopping?

    I know itís me again lol worried bun mum alert.


    So the boys have been home from the bonders a week tomorrow. Iím amazed at how well they have been doing considering their previous fall out.
    The day I brought them home they were grooming each other which took over three months after their initial bond before that happened and Luther is grooming Truffle too which was rare before.

    After expanding over a few days they are nearly at full pen size (just under 4ft sq).
    But this morning I happened to turn bunny cam on and saw them circling at 8.30 this morning, so I launched downstairs to stop them, I sprayed Luther as he was the initiator and we think this behaviour was potentially why they originally fell out.

    And there has been two more occasions of this, this morning but those were started by Truffle.
    Iím stopping it before anyone gets annoyed....is that right? I think itís them trying to hump.

    Is the space too big too fast and I need to reduce again?
    A cat smashed a plate in the night could it be thatís upset them?

    Iím between these circling periods they are back to normal, snuggling, licking each other, eating.....

    Thank you for any advice. Ringing the bonders soon too, see what they say x

    Bonder said to just keep on top of the behaviour when it starts, just a quick spray to stop them and hopefully they will stop trying after a while.

    If today they continue all day and evening then reduce the space we have them Sat back down again.

    I canít help but panic * lol

    They seem quite frisky overall today, Truffle tried to binky.

    I hope they settled down again? It could be that they got spooked and that sparked it off, who knows with bunnies

    Binky free at the bridge Boots, you will never be forgotten xxxx

    Thanks :-)

    Yeah seems to have passed, but all day yesterday and last night I was monitoring the camera....so pretty tired today lol.

    I wonder if itís a mixture of them being spooked and rudely awakened by the plate smashing, plus when my OH got up that morning he was sleepy and turned the kitchen light on by mistake so maybe triggered ďmorningĒ time to buns and they got over excited about it being breakfast time.
    Like you say, who knows with bunnies lol!

    Just worried it might happen one time when Iím not looking or around
