    Does anyone have house rabbits? I am having problems with my two rabbits accepting the little boy I took in about a month ago. Everyone is spayed/neutered and I am closely monitoring their visits. However, my bonded pair become aggressive towards each other when the new bunny is around.

    I have a rabbit. They do become aggressive around other rabbits, the other rabbit could be a threat to their health so its only natural to be defensive.

    They are defending their territory - very normal behavior for rabbits. I suggest you fence off an area for the new one so he can live in peace. They may or may not become adapted to each other. A big thumbs up for spaying and neutering!
