Yes, this is normal.  It is most likely due to dominance humping.  Rabbits will do this to establish who is the alpha male or female.  It makes no difference what sex they are. But there is a hierarchy within males, within females and within males and females together.  Even spayed and neutered bunnies will do this to each other to establish a hierarchy.

I think its more of an assertion or dominant thing lol Very much play but I think its also how they test the waters to see who gets to be the alpha bunn. I could be wrong....but most animals will mount and hump either sex.

Hmmm now isn't that just like a boy to be so busy trying to posture for the other males that he forgets all about the females....
are the females spayed? you probably don't want the boys running around humping unspayed females...there could be lots of babies realllllly quick that way!!

Hi! I know the female is still young, but I would advise the owner to start bein careful allowing her bunny around non fixed boys - I think when I was doing the research I saw that the unspayed females can get pregnant as young as 3 months, and of course getting pregnant at such a young age is very dangerous for them, so make sure she stops letting her girl run around with non fixed boys!
