Bonding more then 1 Bun Question

Hey Everyone.

My young cousin and her family are moving into a new place that has little/no yard, She is in college & working so has little spare time. My cousin has a 'hutch' bunny (he lives outside) named Bo who is a 3 year old Mini Rex (velvatine?) bun, he's not neutered.
My Aunt has been bugging me to take him since I bought my new house last year, and now with them moving and me seeing what a great bun he 'could' be with a little TLC (and a snip snip ) i'm wondering if there's any chance of bonding him to my two buns (one is 1 the other 2 or 3)?

I'm so new to the bunny world, though loving every minute of it. i don't want to make any mistakes, or take on more animals then I can handle.

I'd like to know your thoughts, and experiance with these types of situations.
Thank You!

Any "chance"?? Certainly. How much of a chance you need someone a lot more knowledgeable than me, and I doubt if even they could be sure.

With all these critters, including gerbils, intro's are very hard to figure. Chemistry I guess.

it could go either way. sometimes when rabbits bond they are terrirtorial of eachother- but if they are all fixed you might be able to have a successful bonding. what are your two rabbits? 2 males, 2 females, or a male and a female?

2 Neutered males are my boys.
It seems it could really go either way, and if it dosn't work out i just don't have the room for another indoor rabbit hutch.. I have ALOT to think about.

It could work . I have two neutered males who are completely bonded. Actually, I've found that bonding two males is easier then two females .

I know they recommend a male and female pairing but i know of bonded neutered males and bonded neutered females...its sometimes longer to bond..but every bunny pair are different..

We have finally bonded our 2..just as i gave up and started to clear a space in my bedroom for the lady bun to live in!
her name when we got her from the rescue was leonie but i dont think anyone had called her by it..and shed lived in a hutch for 18months........our oscar lived in a hutch for 8 months..and BOTH are now house bunnies.

Heres a link to the site my 21 yr old daughter who has severe CFS/M.E has made about bunny bonding..there are pics videos shot by her of our bunnies..and day by day accounts of our experience so far.


i hope its of some help.

Also you must remeber it takes 4 weeks following males neutering for the hormones to drop.

good luck
