So I seem to have gotten really lucky! I started bonding my two male bunnies (neutered) about 3 weeks ago. I started out with putting them both in the tub, and after a couple days of one of them mounting occasionally and the other just sitting there, they seemed to tolerate each other's company. Then I did a short trip in the car, and this really solidified their friendship. Now I let them out in my room together when I am home, and they do binkies, eat together, and sometimes groom. They don't seem "in love" but they are certainly on good terms.
Now for the question: when should I start to trust them together when I am not around? They don't sleep in the same cage right now, and I don't let them out together without supervision. I've had one of the bunnies for a little longer, and he is allowed to free-roam. The other bunny is pretty good with his litter training (much better after the neuter) so I'm thinking I could trust him to free-roam in my room now as well. I don't want to push their friendship and take a step backwards, but I feel bad separating them when they seem to be having a good time. Thoughts?
