I haven't been on here in a while... but i'm soooo excited and worried at the same time! We just went to the pet store on Sunday and bought two new bunnies. They are adorable! They are both long haired. One is albino i believe, and the other one is white with gray.
I already have Bayle, which i've posted picks of on here a while back. The problem is, i'm not sure we did things right when it came to Bayle. Bayle is NOT spayed or nuetered (not sure if he/she is a he or a she). I DO plan on it as soon as i get the money, which shouldn't be too long, I just got a second job.
Anyway, its been really hard bonding with Bayle. We finally got it to where she would come up to us and let us pet her, but we never had that gutts to pick her up because she seemed like she hated it so bad. We would let her (i really think its a girl even though all this time, my bf and I been saying sh) out to roam in a bunny proof room and she would come up to us and sniff us if we were still. VERY SKITTISH! I have no idea what we've done wrong, but if there is a way to fix it i would love to know how.
To make matters worse, we bring home two MALE bunnies, and I believe now that Bayle is a female. The two male bunnies are neutered. We have two cages set up close, but not RIGHT beside each other, Bayle is in one and the two males are in another. We also have small dog fences(2), one is attatched to Bayle's cage and the other is attatched to the males' cage. This way we could leave the door open on the cages and let them have more space.
I have let Bayle out of her pin so she could check out the two males, and she seems very intense.... like she wants to get to them. I have also let the two males out so that they could check out Bayle, but I haven't tried to let them all out at the same time... I believe this would cause big problems. The question is, is it a bad idea to have their cages close like this.... I can try to take a picture and post it sometime, but i'm not sure if this is a good idea.
I really don't know what to do, any help would be greatly appreciated. Is it a bad idea to give bunnies a lot of freedom or space before you bond with them? I love them all and I want them to trust me. I have no idea how to do this. I picked Bayle up and I held him close to me (i'm very gentle when I pick them up) and I thought she was going to go crazy!! When I went to put her back down she scratched me all up. I'm excited about my new bunnies, but I'm very worried that i'm doing everything wrong!!!
