    I think one of the reasons I put off bonding is the "rule" I have been given that you put them together and then don't separate at any point unless fighting... This just isn't practical especially with so many others to care for solo.

    You have inspired me J&B, I realise I will have to take the same approach and have several meetings, as time and nerves allow.
    My heart is in a thousand pieces for my soulmate stopped running today (22.05.13) and 12.12.20

    We go with whatever works for the bunnies TBH, Lopsy was such a laid back soul we could leave them to it, but Chibbs is such an absolute cow we had to stop/start but keep them together and separated. At least they didn't kick off every time we increased the space!

    She'd be totally pampered by Matt But it seems you've got it in hand
    The geeky one... Pronouns: she/her/any.

    Thank You He has been a nice & gentle boy I'm tempted to squish a strawberry on eddy's nose & see if that tempts Boo to get her tongue at.

    I think he likes the house as much as he likes Boo. He is so happy right now he has worked out the stairs. He hasn't been in the bedrooms yet. A free range bunny that makes use of every bit of space is my dream, although he is so fast & inquisitive I have front door paranoia. Boo by the way is totally cool with him in the lounge & it works better for Eddy & I as we can do stuff while she sleeps...& sleeps

    He is such a good little hay muncher. I'm thinking him & Boo might like extra stalky next

    Are they together 24/7 now?

    I keep having the same thoughts about the extra stalky hay But then I shake myself and think why change something that is clearly working very well. The answer that myself gives every time, is that it would be purely for my interest.

    no! they haven't been left alone for even 30 seconds I put them together in the lounge (Boo first) when I'm home from work. before i go to work Boo stays in bedroom (always has as the point of her being in lounge is to have company - i'm tui & froe too much in the mornings )so Eddy gets more rooms to explore til I leave

    TBH I do like the stick with it method but as you say its not practical for a lot of people a lot of the time. I think the bunnies know where they are at better. this "bonding" I'm doing now is kinda working so I can get away with it so far Some bunnies are just so lovely to bond, like Rudey & Mouse just melted together. I mainly need to work on my self confidence now. I know there is no animosity between them, they enjoy closeness. I need to be assured when he moves quickly towards Boo she doesn't become reactive. I feel I need to get her used to his speed I need to at least start observing from the sofa rather than within hands reach of Boo i'm glad you're inspired BB. Apparently the daily dates can get frustrating for bunnies (I've read this more than experienced it). That said if this approach feels more manageable for you defo try it. My number one thing is to be calm & encouraging when bonding starts & be aware of vibes / atmospheres. Gosh I sound like a right hippy
    I break so many bonding rules i'm embarassed to talk about it
