Hola Amigos, I haven't been here in quite some time but I've been busy! I'm still trying to bond the boys in my trio. Oddly enough when they're together they don't fight. They are definatly nervous of one another though. When the are apart, then they scrabble at the bars with murder on the mind. Perhaps this is counterproductive?? Anyhow, here are some picures of a recent boning session. Lots of preening and sniffing going on. Good sign? Let me know what you think. Videos coming soon.

^^^i was just thinking, what a pretty floor! i love that color. my bathroom has these horrible ugly tiles. i rent the house from my grandparents and they are the SAME TILES that were in the bathroom when MY MOM lived here when she was growing up, so they are at least 40 years old! lol!

if they are not fighting at all in neutral space, you can probably move to semi-neutral. so maybe an xpen or closed off area in a room they rarely go into, but have seen before.

Are they fighting through the bars of their cage because they can see each other? If yes, perhaps they are trying to defend their territory and in that case I would change it up so they can't see each other and get upset. The other thing you can do is switch where they stay, leave everything the was it is, food/water/litter etc, and put them in one another's cage-so they get used to sharing and stop defending. But I'll have to say it sounds like its going well! And your lop is a spitting image of my Chuck!
