Hello, this is my first post ever here, so I hope it makes sense.
I have a male Lionhead rabbit named Leo, he's a little over a year old and I got him when he was just a baby. He was my first rabbit ever, so naturally I spoiled him rotten. I live in a two bedroom apartment, and he has his own room, and he has free roam of my apt while Im home. He's used to being the only bunny in my life, so I wasn't sure if I should get him a lady friend or not, but I felt bad that he was alone while I was at work so I gave in. Today I decided to finally go ahead and do it, I bought a beautiful female baby Dutch, and named her Lily. So far I'm not sure how Leo feels about her, I had him sniff her while she was in her cage, he tried nibbling her nose, and that worried me a little bit. How long should I wait to let them both out by eachother, and would it be a good idea to completely clean his room to get rid of scents? Any other suggestions?
Hi and welcome!! First off, they are both altered right? If not, keep them away from each other 100%. Rabbits will get pregnant young and by the simple act of mating. I'm assuming your new girl isn't since you said she was a baby youll need to get them both altered and recovered ( about 4 weeks) before you can introduce and start the bonding process
