Bathroom, make sure there is nothing Theo or Jhet (whichever you put in there) can get into or chew on, make sure they have plenty of blankies on the floor and a box to sleep in. Just a square box with a hole cut in the side or something along those lines where they can feel secure. Plus water and plenty of hay.

Yes, however it is also possible to be allergic to environmental elements such as the kind of hay or bedding. As both buns look to have the same kind of fur it is unlikely they are the cause. Remember... we are heading for wildflower season and airborne allergens will be rife and possibly their hay could contain regional pollens. What type of hay do you feed them?

The yellow straw type is fine thats what mine have and they love it. They have meadow hay occasionally but it can be very dusty so its just and occasional treat. Just check the fat and protein levels in the pellets and make sure they are relatively plain without to many added goodies. I would download the HRS food lists from the Binky Bunny Homepage as soon as you can.

Also always make sure all their greens, fruit and veg is washed well before you give it to them.

I am highly allergic to hay. I have found that having a bedroom-sized air filter (mine didn't cost too much from Bed Bath and Beyond) helps tremendously! So does having someone else feed the hay. We also keep hay in the litterbox, to avoid more dust. Just some thoughts to help the allergies!

Hi, Jacob, it sounds like Roberta is giving you plenty of good advice here. I just want to reiterate the necessity of separating them for now until a month after one (preferably both) is neutered. They will not really bond well until their hormones have died down a bit, and at this age they will get worse in the next couple of months before they get better.

I urge you to read the Bunny Info. sections (drop down menu from the top green banner) for all kinds of great suggestions on habitat set ups, diet and foods, and bonding techniques. You can learn about how to bond ahead of time and be prepared to start after the neuter.

You want to get established with a rabbit savvy vet, often listed under Exotics. I think you guys are already networking about that. (Please, no negative statements about vets you don't like here. It's against the rules.) A baseline check up of both bunnies is important for their health, gender confirmation, and establishing with a vet you like. You can even schedule the neuter way in advance once the vet sees them and has an idea of when they will be ready. Get a price quote and save up for it, too. It's really important to have done, for health as well as an easier time bonding.

Check out that food list and the diet pages. They'll really help.

And again, try to get a second cage or construct a second habitat for one in an xpen or nic cubes. They need at least 3" apart. If it turns out that one is a female after all, cages close together can still result in a OOPS litter. Bunnies are determined that way.

Hi Jacob,
No responses yet but I found this one online and they state they routinely treat rabbits. I also think its closer to you... Even if you are happy with Baldivis it is good to have emergency back up. http://www.malibuvet.com.au/

Oh the cherry tomatoes should still be OK for a treat but get the seeds out first.
