It's much more likely than if both rabbits are altered. But nobody can predict how two animals will react to each other. It's much easier to bond two altered rabbits.

Hard to say. If the hormones are still there. Bunnies are naturally territorial anyway so you'll likely get a squabble anyway. I had an un neutered boy play with my spayed female and all he did was hump her. So hopefully before you get Penny spayed she wont be drove nuts by the boy. The non spayed will probably get fed up and fight him??

Even with the girl spayed, the male will still try to hump her. This usually results in fighting in the long term because his urges won't stop.

Didnt you just get your boy fixed? Correct me if Im wrong, but I thought you had a thread a couple days ago saying that the vet wouldnt get back to you or something.
Male rabbits can still get a female preggo up to 2 months after they are fixed. Even though their reproductive parts are gone, they arent sterile yet.
Their hormones wont be dying down untill 6 months after they are fixed.
If I were you, I would wait untill 6 months after your boy was fixed to introduce them, and get your girly spayed in the mean time. Once they are both fixed and hormone-less, intoduce them in a neutral territory. Its a bit of a wait, but intos will be much smoother this way!

Even if he just got neutered, he can still get females pregnant for awhile. The testicles are removed during a neuter, but there is still active sperm remaining in the rest of the reproductive track. Also, the hormones don't die down right away, it takes some time after the neuter.

You should look into getting the female spayed as well. It can help with behavioral problems, make litter box training easier, and will greatly reduce the risk of cancer.

You just have to be patient!
You can keep their cages side by side and that will halp them get accustomed to each other. You definatly need to wait at least 2 months, but I guess you can let them meet after that if you REALLY want to, but they could fight and that might make them harder to bond later. 6 months is just the average time it takes for hormones to die down, but every bun is different.

I have never heard of waiting 6 months for hormones to die down. Every where I read says a month or two.

At least three months is the norm. And yes, I have indeed heard of a male that got a female pregnant nearly three months after his surgery!

It took Teddy a LONG time for his hormones to be gone. He was fully mature and over a year old (at least) when he has his nip. I guess there were a lot of hormones that built up in him.
And yes - anybun may (or may not) fight another bun - regardless of sex.
