I have the same problem with my Penelope. She is always biting someone elses tush. She is just such a brat!
My advice is to check out www.rabbit.org for tips. Go slowly and don't give up. I gave up a few times now. I don't think that helps.
What I have been doing is putting them in a large box (that I can fit into as well). The five of us sit there. I have a water bottle close by just in case they fight. Sometimes I just use my hands to separate them but that is not really the best idea - and I have a scar to prove that.
I was told to give them hay and salads while bonding. Also good treats - all in hopes that they will nibble on the treats and pay less attention to the other buns.
Some mounting and a bit of nipping is okay. Just be careful it does not escalate into a real fight. Watch the circling because that can turn into a fight quickly.
Good luck!

Is she spayed? If not, then it sounds like she's going through puberty...these behavioral problems are pretty normal for intact does. Getting her spayed should help a lot .

Oh dear - you should always have them spayed and neutered before attempting bonding. It makes things much easier - and no baby bunnies if they are not sexed properly!
I didn't even think of that. Good call Steph.
