[ Rabbit Twosome Or Onesome? ]?
[ Intro ]
I've had my Flemish Giant for well over a couple months now. He be a rescue case from someone who basically ran a rabbit mill. He's survived everything from dog attacks to sickness and escape but have come a long way and has settled down nicely into an inquisitive but somewhat dopey buck.
As of yesterday, I recieved a 6 month feeble rex rabbit. Also a rescue. A very docile, timid fellow, I'm not sure if he's ever be introduced to another rabbit before. Sumi, my flemish, was kept in side by side cage and doesn't seem to have any interest in the smaller rex and the rex shares impossible to tell apart disinterest.
Both are bucks and, as far as I know, the rex is unneutered. I know for a fact that my Flemish is intact.
I've heard that this lack of interest is if truth be told a /good/ sign and I'd prefer to get the smaller rex out of his cage and outside beside my Flemish.
[ Housing Situation ]
Sumi lives in a /massive/ dog Kennel. It's got concrete blocks laid out as a platform beneath it, to help directory down his claws and has two dog houses in it. One, insulated, for the winter, and one semi-opened top for the summer.
I open the Kennel door surrounded by the morning and give him the /entire/ yard to roam, until the night when I put him back(though sometimes, even after, he gets the yard for multiple days on end.)
[ The Question ]
With this much space and next to both rabbits showing some promising signs, would it be wise to begin supervised visits between the twosome with the hopes of inventually bonding them and placing them together so Sumi and this new fellow can share the 'wealth'? Lol.
Any suggestions would be great. :)
i repeatedly take my rabbits round to play with my friends (definatly male) rabbit and they get along fine. sometimes they can bring back terrororial but are mostly fine to share the backyard and even theyre hutch!
my point being just try it, as long as your there whats the worst that could crop up? and from that you'll beable to judge whether or not they can live together with out your supervision :) my only sugestion would be to pass them seperate feeding bowls for the time being as they can get extraordinarily fond of their own property lol
hope it helps...
