Hi everyone! I'm a new bunny mom (about a month) and I'm still learning the basics! I've had my two little ones into the vet and was told that they are both little girls (I was certain Stewart was a boy, oops!). Then earlier today I noticed Stweart getting a little too excited and he started humping Anna. Was my vet wrong, or do girl bunnies hump too?
I'm hoping to get them fixed in about 2 months when they should be 6 months old, but unfortunatly it's going to cost me about $400CDN for the both of them so I don't think I can swing it in the immediate future -but I also don't want to add any new members to the family any time soon!
Girls definitely mount each other and boys too as a way of expressing dominance. Your girls are coming of age, and starting to want to claim their territory. I hope you find a way to get them spayed at around 6 months or so, because they may start to fight if their hormones make them aggressive.
Thanks everyone I appreciate all the info! I wasn't feeling very confident with the first vet we visited so I think we'll try again.
Here's another question for you: if I'm having behaviour issues with just one (Stewart has also started nipping a little) would it be okay to have one fixed now and the other closer to six months? I'm estimating that they are about 4 months old now -when I adopted them their previous owner had very little information to offer...
