Hi! i recently saw that people are staring a new thread for rabbits. I have two rabbits of my own, a male Netherland dwarf and and female mini fluffy lop (yes that’s what they are called lol.). The Netherland dwarf is fixed and his behavior has significantly improved since then. My two rabbits have a huge cage which they can run around in through their tunnels and everything. During the day we open up their door and they can run down their ramp into their outdoor area, which is the same size as my chicken run, which is pretty big too! My rabbits love this and do binkys all day around their pen. They will snuggle together and are completely in love. With so much space, I am considering adopting another rabbit from a nearby shelter. Would this ruin my rabbits relationship?

I only have the one rabbit that we bought from a breeder and he does perfectly fine by himself with limited contact with my dogs (probably because my mini Yorkie things he can eat a rabbit the same size. If he’s fixed I wouldn’t worry as much as much for getting another fixed male. My rabbit has notched ears from being in a pen with all baby bucks but of course just watch everyone and introduce slowly. I’m new to rabbits but that seems to make sense.

If things are going well between your rabbits, just leave things be. Introducing another rabbit may work out just fine. Or it may not. As bunnylady has said, rabbits get along just fine until they don't. Then it can get pretty bloody.

That’s what I’m worried about! I am probably just going to stick to my two rabbits for now
