Thread: New bunny mum

  1. #1

    Default New bunny mum

    Hello all, myself and hubby have just adopted 3 male bunnies (brothers) from a local rescue. They arrived last Wed and are settling in nicely 🐰🐰🐰.

    We are giving them both the posh hay (Burgess etc) and bedding hay, and yep the bedding hay is preferred! Also the rescue suggested readigrass but they don't seem bothered by it 🙄

    Anyway I'm loving having them here 💜💜💜

    We also have 4 rescue cats and a stray that we feed who needs debaubling (we've tried trapping him but he is too crafty... haven't conceded defeat yet tho'!)

    I look forward to seeing what gets posted on the forums 👀👀👀👀

    Hello and welcome. How old are the babies?

    Hello again all, the boys are around 7 months old. Apparently they were part of a litter of 8 and went to the rescue aged 5 weeks as their mum had a stroke and died.

    They are called Mars, Pluto and Mercury.

    Wow! I assume they are neutered but lucky they are still happy together.

    Hi tonibun, yep they are all neutered tho' the dominant male is still a little 'frisky' with his brothers! The rescue said that so far they get on fine so hopefully this will continue, keeping all my fingers/toes/eyes crossed ����

    Yeah! Fingers crossed. Have you a contingency plan if it goes a bit pear-shaped?

    I'll speak to the rescue for their expert advice. They operate an introduction scheme but I would hate to split them up. The frisky bun Mars is the boss, he acts as lookout and I have only had them a few days so they are still finding their way around.

    They are housed in a 7x5 shed with a smaller hutch inside and they can access a 6x8 run so they have plenty of space. My colleagues think I am nuts but I don't care (hmm doesn't like my iPad emojis!)
