Right behaviour not improved and it seems wee Jetfire getting the brunt of it, came down this morning and there was a tufted of her fur. She does bend down ears back when he grunting about.
Do I split them up and leave soundwave on his own and risk having three separate rabbits (which would end my relationship) and how would soundwave cope when suddenly on his own? Jetfire and thundercracker do sniff thro the pen at each other without anything and i have set the pen up for bonding.
I just don't know whether it the best option for everyone including humans
Would I be back at the start with him?

Maybe Soundwave would be a happy single bun ... some are. Henry was, he didn't want to know other rabbits.
If you could bond Jetfire with Thundercracker that would be two happy buns. Jetfire doesn't seem to get a lot out of her relationship with Soundwave so maybe try that bonding.
Would it be possible to set things up for a bonded pair and a single so Soundwave could still see them and not be completely without rabbit company.?

I have spoken to a rabbit specialist and she has suggested that to try different feeding bowls and try reminding them burn she was also telling me to prepare to bond Jetfire with thundercracker.
Took the first steps with Jetfire and thundercracker and all went well he did do something I hadn't seen before he was putting his front paws on her shoulders to push her down I know this is a dominance thing. I placed Jetfire in with soundwave and she ran to him for comfort and he comforted her, I don't think I could split them up now.

Maybe it is Thundercracker's presence that is the problem. Have you tried removing him well away from the other two?

Plan a: sofa between the two cages
Plan B: feeding in separate bowls
Plan c: rebonding soundwave and Jetfire
Plan d: giving Jetfire a wee space just for her
Plan e: pet remedy
Plan f: seeing how thundercracker and Jetfire go

Plans a to e implemented and plan f has been abandoned.
If none of that works I have ran out of advice.

It did cross my mind and the vet also thought that too why the sofa has been places in the middle.
That's been 5months I've had thundercracker, why is it upsetting him now? Could it just have been building in his we head.

Rabbits do take sudden dislikes to old acquaintances .... bonded pairs can fall out big time.
The sofa may stop them seeing each other, it doesn't stop them smelling each other! If Soundwave has taken a major dislike to Thundercracker then smelling him and not seeing him could be very infuriating for him. It may be a case of, "I know your there, come out and let me kill you!".

Sometimes they are totally impossible to fathom love, I just wish I could give some good advice. When I had the three bunnies, one was dominant but there were no fights although I have seen them when they really go for it and it is scary.

If that is the case I'll need to think about rehoming thundercracker Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad I have no where else I can put him they all have shots each of the house.
Hopefully it won't come to that I have an emergency back up plan if it doesn't seem like he settling down.

Soundwave and Jetfire seem to be back to normal, Jetfire has began to hump his head again although he has fallen out with me, no idea what I have done this time.

I know Jo it terrifying, when soundwave broke the baby gate to get to Jetfire (during the first bonding) it was so scary the strength of him to actually break the lock on a sturdy baby gate, it really flimsy now you don't need to push the button in to open it anymore.

Having that situation where there is so much tension and stress isn't good. Two bucks, one doe isn't always a happy combination even when they have all been "done". Without the sexual/mating side of it there is still a certain amount of gender preference. Also it might be the simple case that there is a clash of personalities, they simply don't like each other. Ether way the stress can be enormous.
Is there anyone who would take Thundercracker temporarily, maybe board him somewhere? Just for a week or two so you could see what happens when he's gone. If you could manage to get them parted and use a neutralising spray and try to get rid of his scent as much as possible then see what happens.

I may have someone that may be able to take thundercracker for a wee holiday.
Problem I do have with that is thundercrackers stress anorexia.

Oh sweetie, smashing a gate is serious, it is amazing how strong they are. Holly can open my bedroom door with a heavy shoe rack on it. Holly has days when she will not come to me at all for a snuggle and it really upsets me because as in your case, I have no idea why. Thank you for keeping us posted. Very Happy

Do you think the anorexia caused by stress might be due to the stress he's under now? Maybe he is one of those buns who would thrive away from other rabbits. Not all rabbits settle with their own kind, some are happy as only buns; you may have one of those.

Jo: I think they all do this to some degree. I think we tend to forget that like all dogs have a wolf inside, all rabbits have a wildie in them; they must feel the call of the wild at times.

No he suffered from it before, he settled in the house now and currently showing no symptoms.

Soundwave was very settled with miranda and is now settled Jetfire again. So he is a bunny bun just not a people bun.

I think you are right Woodwench love, that wildness never goes completely whether it be a predator or a prey animal. I am glad things have settled down Gemma hun and some peace has been restored. Very Happy
