I keep being given conflicting advice about keeping rabbits. I've bought the hutch today all ready to collect a boy rabbit tomorrow. I'm worried he will be lonely so am considering bringing back his 'cell' mate to who is also a boy. They seem happy together in the shop.
Is this a good idea or not? Definitely will get neutered in about 4 weeks if that will help.
What's the conflicting advice? Yes, rabbits need to be in pairs (at least). And yes - definitely need to be neutered. They need to be around 12 weeks old/mature enough for this. So timing is key to get them neutered before hormones kick in and fights start. (If this happens you would need to separate and re-bond them). Two boys together is fine - male/female pairs are supposedly the easiest to bond, but it's not essential (I've bonded males). You'll need space whether you get one or two... ie. a run attached to hutch. Will they be houserabbits or outside? Dare I ask why a pet shop and not a rescue charity? When you see them cuddling together it's so sweet! You'll be shocked you ever considered separating them! All the best.
