I can smell her scent glands just when I pick her up and put her on her back, even though I clean them every 3 weeks. It seems like hers are kind of loose compared to Pookers, which are more tightened up and don't let the smell out. Is there anything I can do? PEE-EW!

Has she always been like this, or just recently and if just recently, for how long?

Has she been marking more - chinning etc since Pooker's departure?   She could be thinking..."Okay, this place is now mine all mine!"  and off a marking she shall go.  If that is the case, then she could be using her anal scent glands to scent her poos too.    And IF that is the case too, then that should stop in a few weeks, and she should be back to her regular sweet smelling bunny self.  

Let me know if she's still smelly in couple of weeks.

Oh ok, I think you are right because they just seemed to be smelly that one time. She was marking her poops quite alot (she does that in every new place though). I think you are right. I can definitely imagine her going "mine all mine!" because she's been so much more active & social since Pookers left. She's back to ruling the house! That irritation on the back of her neck that I was worried was mites has gone away since he left too (no more crazy grooming).
