    Default Trios

    I have recently had to have Tessie pts. She lived outside with Snowflake who is now alone. Her sister Daisy lives with Frosty, also outside but he bullied Snowflake when they were together so I am wondering about bonding Snowflake to my indoor rabbits, Loganberry and Moondust.

    L and M are very close and quite gentle. Snowflake is also gentle and was definately the submissive one when he loved with Frosty.

    I reaaly cannot afford to get another rabbit, tennants are my only income and are moving at the end of the month. Will get more in (hopefully) but things are a bit lean atm hence considering a trio. Also Snowflake would love to be indoors! He was as a baby and it suited him.

    Any trio stories very welcome. Thankies.

    Awww good luck - i hope they all get on. I read about needing submissive buns to make up a group & they all sound like sweeties so hopefully it will work . Plus you have the bonding skills & experience

    Hope all goes well with you trio.
    I think M&TM has a trio bonding video, it might be one of the sticky topics on the bonding section

    Edit
    It doesn't look like it is a sticky
    Here is a link to the first part of the trio bonding. You should be able to navigate to the remaining section from there. She also has a video from when she bonded five buns

    Thanks all. I have rewatched those bonding videos. Some good tips there. Just hope Loganberry doesnt object to Snowflake ...

    Got to clear a space next. Eek.

    Having second thoughts re bonding Snowflake to such a loved up pair. Maybe a new doe for him would be best.

    I guess it is hard getting rescue rabbits atm.

    I dont know that it is hard, I think that there has been an increase into rescue. Certainly my local rescue seems to have so many more.

    Wishing you luck with your hunt for a new rescue. It is such a difficult time.

    If you are ready, i think it is worth talking a rescue. I think I'm sure I saw a Facebook from a rescue saying they are continuing to re-home. Different rescues may have different policies at the moment

    Yes we've managed to rehome during lockdowns.

    Most rescues have a good covid policy. We did struggle to find girls in our area so we had to travel a bit but there's the opposite problem now and lots of them!

    I've got a rescue bunny on foster at the moment to see if he will bond with me doe. I applied last Sunday thinking it would take weeks to sort out and they got back to me the next day.
