    how old is Stan? does he have big enough accommodation for the 2 of them? or would they need a new bunny mansion?
    would the current owners hold on to her for you until she was spayed and well again?
    I'm sure he would be much happier with a girlfriend as pretty and big as him

    Stan is 23 weeks! His accommodation is our house lol! He doesnt get locked up at all so i couldnt keep them separated until he was done! But im hoping to get him done nexty week if i can get him to the vets!

    I dont understand what you mean by get her spayed and well again?

    I think he would like a girly too but he is very happy on his own and is very bossy so im hoping that he wouldnt be too bossy to a girly!! ha ha

    :) if he has the whole house then you could keep her in the kitchen or a room for a while and get a baby gate (which hed prob just jump over) or just keep the door closed until they are both neutered and healed.

    Spayed and well - when I had my rabbit spayed she had to go back to the vets for more antiinflammatory and pain relief because she wasnt eating and stayed over night, she wasnt herself for a good 2 weeks, as you can imagine it would be super painful, the last thing shed want is a randy stan poking her hehe

    Yeah he probably would jump over! lol

    Well if i get Stan done next week then i would have to wait a few weeks before i put them together but i wouldnt get her done until she was at least 6months old but once he was ok then i would let them be together as it should be safe! I just need to have a word with the OH now! :p

    I think their sperm can live for a while after they are done, double check with your vets tho. also i dont know if rabbits can have phantom pregnancies like dogs? but under 6months im sure she would be ok? what does everyone else think?

    Yeah i was told it best to leave him 6 weeks after his op but also that does cant get preggers until they are 4 months old but i wouldnt wanna risk her geting injured anyway so i would keep them apart for the 6 weeks! I suppose it would be best just for me to leave it til after the 6 weeks and look again but i really like the look of this one! But i need to think how to keep them separated!

    she is perfect for him, I dont know how rare they are

    i guess your options are:
    keep 1 in the garden, which would involve buying accommodation
    keep 1 in a garage/shed if you have 1 and its not full of rubbish/cars
    keep 1 in a room by its self Stan would need rest anyway
    ask the current owners if they could hold on to her for 6 weeks
    ask the current owners if they are gonna bread again and wait

    Remember there's a chance they might not even get on if you get him a friend, what will happen then? It's harder in this case as you will find it difficult to keep them separate if they don't get on as they have free run of the house. Just a point but i'm sure you've already thought of this! :)

    I think you would be best to wait. You could end up with a disaster on your hands if you rush into something merely because its available now.

    Get Stan sorted, then think about getting him a girlie.

    You need to do whats best for the animals involved, and in this situation you need to be sensible. Dont let your heart rule your head. The right female will turn up at the right time.

    Its 6 weeks after being castrated that a buck can go with a doe.
     
  20. I aren't being funny here, but didn't you just re-home your other bunnys? Not having a go... just a question :)
