    It depends on the rabbits i guess.
    I have two female rabbits- not fixed - that are rooming together outside. Up until a few months ago they never even knew they existed. you have to slowly get them used to eachother and watch them to make sure they arent going to kill eachother. if things get too 'intense' in there, take them out and separate them, then try it again the next day. dont go cold turkey. also, breeding might occur, that happened to my two, i think it was just to see who was more dominant?

    make sure they have enough room together too! bunnies hate to be crowded ;-)

    I have two unrelated female rabbits, they occasionally wrestle but they've never drawn blood. They're both under a year, not sure if that makes a difference.
