Grouping Rabbits

Post by BunnyCrazy674 on Mon May 29, 2017 10:11 am

I currently have 3 rabbits, 2 sisers and their brother who lives alone. The girl's have both been neutered and the boy is going to be neutered. I plan to introduce them together once all the rabbits have been neutered. I am wondering if it would be best to get a fourth, not related, rabbit and introduce it to the boy before putting all of them together. I would like to know if 3 or 4 would be better and if 4 whether a girl or a boy would be better. If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it thanks.

I don't have any experience of bonding love but I would just concentrate on bonding the boy with the girls, a fourth bunny might create more problems. I don't know if this is god advice, someone else on here will be able to tell you but that is my immediate reaction. Please keep us posted.

Hello and welcome Wave

I've never done it myself but I have read enough to make me want to encourage you to concentrate on bonding the 3. Trying to bond 2 singles to a pair would (generally) be a nightmare.

You mention that they are siblings. Are they still familiar with each other or have they been completely separated?

I would get the male neutered, wait 6 weeks to allow hormones to settle and then introduce him to the 2 female on neutral territory. Don't introduce them in the girls' territory. Your girls already being spayed is a great start Thumbs Up

And you might not have too many problems if they're familiar with each other already!

If it doesn't work out you could always get him a neutered girlfriend of his own Smile

The girl's are still together but they can still see their brother. They were seperated for about 2 months and appear to be fine next to each other. They are quite familiar with each other already so putting the three together might just be better.

It should be easier love if they know each other. I did something similar with guinea pigs and it worked well. Please do keep us updated. Very Happy

For one awful second as I read the title of this I thought it said GROPING rabbits!
Felt silly when I read it again.
It's worth a try to get the three together again... I had a lovely mum, daughter and new buck threesome.
