    Thanks for all your lovely comments on them both

    We’ve started the bonding process today as Willow sadly had an Emergency visit to the vets the other day they treated her for stasis but they think she’s had a slight reaction to her vaccination but she had fluids, pain relief and a gut stimulant but she’s perked right up again so we’ve started today

    There’s been minimal chasing, lots of grooming (willow grooming bailey - bailey had groomed willow but not as much but then he didn’t really groom his previous companion of he could help it

    They’ve ignored each other, have eaten hay and are currently laying together

    Now on my previous bond my female wasn’t very tolerant so we had to do quick dates and gradually increase the time, but so far so good with these two

    What’s the next step, am I still to separate after a few hours or because it’s going well leave them? We’re all down the hallway atm

    So do I separate after a couple hours then try later/today or am I leaving them like this overnight if obviously not fights etc break out?

    Thanks for any help; I wasn’t expecting it to go this well!

    Well it sounds like you have a happy pair of rabbits so I would not separate them now, not even overnight if they remain happy for the rest of the day.

    Really pleased to hear it's going well so far.

    I agree with tonibun that you should keep them together all the time now. If all remains well after a couple of days you can slowly start to increase their space.

    Right that’s what I was just saying to partner lucky our bedroom leads off from hallway and it does have a baby gate there so we can leave them overnight and do shifts in staying awake lol

    So to increase space as we are in a flat and down the hallway etc so the door to bathroom is closed atm would I just open that see how they go?

    Then the next space is the living room so obviously it will jump significantly in space as Bailey is free roam, so I’m guessing now we’re not putting willow back in the dog crate/pen setup

    How soon is too soon to open the living room door as obviously I don’t want to do damage now

    I really wasn’t expecting this it’s kinda thrown me
