    I have just been watching the bunnies and I am wondering whether Floppy could be a he. Floppy has just tried to pin Domino down and erm "do things" with her.
    Is this normal behaviour or could it be a possibility that Floppy has been missexed? They are both 4 months old now.
    Oh and Floppy is bigger than Domino as well.

    My girl bun Dusty rides my other girl bun Willow - just had Dusty 'done' so hopefully it will stop. Is one just trying to be boss? Did you say they'd been done?

    Just have a check to make sure they are the sexes you were told.

    If they haven't been done and he is male you may have a litter
    on the way.....
    When u do sex them check the female for teets if there up and he is male split them up and prepare for babies lol!

    No I haven't had them done yet. Yes Floppy is trying to dominate the Domino.
    I have tried to sex them but I am not sure what I am looking for in regards to Floppy. Domino is definitely a doe.
    I looked at Floppy but couldn't see anything.

    Have a look at this it may help give you an idea what to look for. If your still unsure I'd take them to see the vet to have it confirmed.

    Females have a slit when u push down and males will pop out or have a circle.

    I have chcked them both as best as I can and I could feel nipples on both their tummys. So I am assuming that this makes them both girls. I tried to look at their bits but there is a lot of fur covering that part and it was stressing them both out being held for a long time like that.
