    Default I now have a bonded group of 6!

    Well, I've been quite busy over these last few months. Work has been hectic and hubby and I have been building and sorting out the new rabbit shed...but added to that, I've been busy bonding my 6 rabbits into one large group. We've only gone and done it!!!! So from 2 pairs and 2 singletons, I now have 6 calm and content rabbits! They moved into their new home yesterday and I am beyond happy and excited
    Rabbit shed still looks pretty basic at the moment but my biggest priority was to get the group bonded and moved in without any fights. So far so good

    Thank you It's been a challenge given that they are a real mix of ages, personalities and breeds Makes me laugh that Pete (netherland dwarf) is the tiniest of the group and has secured a real bond with Bear (french lop) the oldest and largest of the group. Real little and large haha! x

    congratulations, they look very bonded!

    is that drinker their only source of water? i don't trust those types (in case the water leaks out) + i'm sure i read that they're not ideal for buns. I have always used a bowl like you have there for their feed.

    Thank you so much I did have to psych myself up to get through it, not gonna lie Bear was the biggest worry as he had become quite aggressive towards me after losing Dolly his partner a few months ago (they were very closely bonded and in love ) so I wasn't sure how he'd take it. I was surprised to find he was the easiest to bond! Best part...I've got my friendly, happy boy back too
