Hi all, I have three California rabbits, all about 8-9 months old, that I've had for around six months. They're in three separate cages, or rather one large cage with three partitions in it, each one about 2 ft x 3 ft x 2 ft. I feed and water them everyday, but for some reason they have not warmed to me AT ALL. They run around their cages and basically freak out every time they see me, regardless of the fact that I am around them every day, and they have not gotten tame at all since I've had them (basically from 9 weeks old or so). I'm trying to breed them now by placing the females in the male's cage, and while he's doing his job (well trying to anyways!), they are EXTREMELY difficult to pick up and put in his cage. When I get either one, after running around their cages wildly, they both sort of clam up and don't move. They get extremely nervous and scared and they don't really do anything after I put them in his cage. My question is this: does anyone know of any way to make them more receptive to me? Should I try smaller cages? I have a hard time picking them up because the cage is so big, but they REFUSE to be touched, let alone picked up. Thanks for your help.
