Question Male Rex Rabbit Urinating on Females

Hi, i have a Non-Nuetered Male Rex Rabbit that is urinating on females. I myself haven't been urinated on as of yet, he only seems to do this to certain females.

I adopted him a few weeks back, seems to be pretty happy and laid back. Any ideas on what can be causing this action and how can bring this under control?

Thank You in advance for any advice.

Neutering him will definitely reduce marking and extreme territorial issues.

Welcome!

I second having him neutered. It will reduce the hormone levels that can cause marking behaviors.

Good luck!

It may take some time for his hormones to completely go away so be patient. Teddy was full grown when he was neutered. I thought that after one week he would stop his marking (by poos and little pees) outside the other bunny rooms. It took longer -it reduced frequency pretty quickly but did not completely go away for a few months. Now I can let him run the hall and he does not poo or pee outside the other buns rooms.
