Don't let them play together! You will be very lucky if the female is not pregnant. You need to get them BOTH fixed before you let them interact.

Are you SURE that it's a male? Female rabbits do hump to establish dominance. Just because one is humping another doesn't mean it's a male. You should figure out how to sex your pets for sure so that you don't chance mixing males and females in the future.

Exactly what mtmaughan said. You DONT want babies, so dont let them play together! Where did you get your rabbits? Petstores are terrible at sexing them, so you are never garenteed what you get there.
And any rabbits, no matter what their genders are, will hump eachother to establish dominance. So it doesnt necessarily mean that you have a boy/girl pair, unless you actually checked your self.


But on the bright side, if it is a boy/girl pair, they will probably be easier to bond than a girl/girl or boy/boy pair AFTER they are fixed.

You need to get her fixed regardless of your other bunny. It doesn't matter whether you have him or not. Also, if it is a male, she is likely pregnant, so a spay right now before she can get too far along is all the more important.

Could you think of a way to raise the money to get them fixed? Maybe have a yard sale, or sell stuff on ebay or something? What about using a credit card and paying it off over time, or seeing if you can borrow money from a friend or relative?

If you don't make a lot of money, it's a good idea to start a emergency fund for the rabbits. You don't want something to happen and not be able to afford to take them to the vet.

Well, why, if knowing neither was fixed, WOULD you let them play together? I doubt she's not pregnant.

I agree w/Dragonrain, having a yard sale or something would help raise money. And also be mindful that while getting the boy neutered and not the girl spayed would be cheaper, the girl is prone to cancer.


You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car.

Im not trying ot be rude, but I REALLY wish you had listened to our advice on not introducing them before they are fixed! THIS is exactly why you should not introduce rabbit that arent fixed, especially when you arent sure of their genders!
And I really hope you dont give up the female. When I got my boy Smudge fixed last summer, it ended up being over $360. The surgery itself was only $210, but since he is older I wanted alot of presurgical work done to make sure it was safe.
Im 15 and I dont have a job, so I had a garage sale, saved up birthday money, babysat, and drew pictures of peoples pets to raise money. After a couple months, I had enough money.

Cool

I know, I know. But the pet store that sold me the bunny told me it was a girl, so i went out and got a girl bunny for her to play with, then i found out the one from the pet store that they said was a girl was a boy . and right when they atrted doing it i seperated them, i obviusly did not let them sit there and do that.

You really can never trust pet stores on sexing any animals, especially young buns. If you even get another rabbit, make sure to get it sexed by the vet before you even think about introducing it to your other rabbits. Or even better, adopt an already fixed rabbit from a shelter or rescue. New rabbits should be quarentined too to make sure they dont have anything that can be passed on to the other buns.


Hows it going with the female? Have you decided what you are going to do with her yet?

If you really want to keep her, some rescues and shelters might help you get her an emergency spay at a discount if you explain the situation.
And if you adopt her out or give her to a shelter, make sure to tell them that she might be preggo!
Good luck
