Pipi has taken to obsessively grooming the other buns, except Nermal who she frequently tries to bite through the Xpen.

The other buns can't make a move without Pipi washing their faces especially round the eyes. Poor Piglet no longer has eyelashes and Pipi has now started on Blossom too. Before Blossom was part of the grooming team but now she is on the receiving end.

All of them groom each other which is lovely but poor Piglet is adored by his family so someone is always attending to his appearance but add to this the obsessive attentions of Pipi and things start to get too much.

They will all be spayed soon, I was wondering if this would alleviate the behavior. (Piglet is already neutered and has been for some time)

Many times overgrooming is just due to stress.
