Oh What a few days. Got a shock the other morning to find Betty mounting Barney and going at it.But his bum was only pushing agains the others back sid.She was pressed against the floor and there seemed no way for any intercourse to occur.
Is this normal behaviour?? The worst thing was, that according to the vet,the genders were complete in contradiction to the actions I was seeing!! Do they swap roles sometimes?? I am confused now?
I went to a local charity hospital that caters for injured animals.It is a NGO,a non-governmental organisation,who although overworked,atleast have qualified staff.But I cud only get an appointment for a few days away. While there,I saw some of the poor bunnies people had abandoned.I cud not stand the sate they were in.If I cud I wud bring all of them home. As it was,I cud not resit a pair who constantly came to me at the edge of heir cage and almost seemed to be begging me to get them out of there.I had to adopt them. Well,now Fred and Wilma have joined Barney & Betty.
They have distinctive markings and the vet showed me how he sexed them etc. I tried the same on the Rubbles,but they both looked male to me??But I believe that at times it is hard to tell.Any helpin that department wud b appreciated.
Anyhow, my techniques may b working as the Rubbles have accepted the Flintstones.Well to the point until they took over their favourite pillow.Then,they just moved to the other side of the room.But now they r back together again...Oh these family quarrels!!
Anyway, here r their pics:-
Once again,wud apperciate info on their breed.I am told they r 'Agouri' and they wont grow much larger than this.But I am not sure as most of the bunnies r sold 4 kids in India and they only want the cute little ones.
Also, training them may b a challenge as far as litter training goes.Shud I let them share the same cage? At rpesent I have them in different ones at night.
