    Default Bonding a trio journey!! (updated 4th April)

    All quiet at first. Britney nipped Phillip on the bottom but nothing came of it so they all carried on eating.





    Then the food disappeared. Phillip requested grooming but nobody obliged so he started mounting whichever bunny he could get his paws on. Britney and Whitney didnít like this and stomped. We gave them a bit more food and ended on a happy note. The girls are still quite nervous so didnít want to stress them out too much. No fighting though so thatís got to be a good thing?!

    Sounds good so far are you leaving them together now? I like to put a huge never ending pile of hay, forage and things in the middle to encourage them to eat together

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

    Weíve separated for now as we both have work tomorrow. Didnít think to put hay down thatís a much healthier idea than pellets

    Pellets can often cause a frenzy even in fully bonded bunnies I use hay, dried and fresh forage, Readigrass and dried flower type mixes normally lasts them quite a while and can be topped up without causing a whirlwind

    Fingers crossed for you all

    Default Bonding attempt 1

    Day 2. No fighting or chasing still, just some mounting from Phillip.

    Fingers crossed it continues to go well Watch out for anybun getting territorial over the little house and the bowl. I had to remove a litter tray in the early stages of bonding as they were both trying to claim it and I ended up scatter feeding hay etc. It was a messy business
