I have been working on bonding my trio. 1 male and 2 females. We have done numerous car rides and neutral time. Every neutral time (except for the last session) has resulted in my Holland (Scout; female) going after Lilbit (female). Lilbit was hand raised and has never been around a bunny before. She is a very laid back, calm girl and Scout is a bully (she is a whopping 3 lbs and she thinks she is large and in charge!). Scout chases her and nips her on the behind. Most times Lilbit runs, even before Scout or Smudge get near her. I know this is out of fear. Do I need to keep doing the neutral time daily? If I work on it 3-4 times a week am I setting myself back? I am not sure if I need to keep doing all 3 together (Scout and Smudge, the male, seem to be getting along) or bond 2 and add the third in. In my mind I feel if I get 2 bonded it will be harder to work in the third.
I wish I could get all 5 of my bunnies together, sure would make my life easier! Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can throw at me.
