I just adopted Piper yesterday. She’s about 1.5 yrs old and is a Netherland Dwarf/Dutch cross weighing about 3 lbs. She is not spayed yet but will be soon.
As far as getting a second bunny goes I‘m torn… taking her to a rescue for a meet & greet could work but part of the reason I’m thinking about a second bunny is for me. I was wanting, and looking for, a Netherland Dwarf. I’ve found a dark chocolate male that’s about a year old and is friendly. But I’ve also found some Ditch babies. They are so darn cute! I understand that if I choose a bunny (instead of letting her choose) they might not get along. But wouldn’t having a bunny in a cage next door be some company for the long hours they would otherwise be alone? And would the odds of them getting along be better if I get a young adult or a baby?
Also, if I get a second bunny should they be kept completely apart (like in separate rooms) until a few weeks after they have both been altered? Or can they be in separate cages next to each other??
