    My female rabbit seems to be humping my male rabbit a lot (especially when they’re put in their run rather than their hutch), while she is doing this she also seems to be pulling out some of his fur.

    He doesn’t seem phased by any of this - however, I’m unsure if this is normal as I’ve never witnessed them doing it before?

    He is 1 year and neuted, she is almost one year but is yet to be spade. Thanks.

    It will most likely be a phantom pregnancy as she's not been spayed yet and she's around a male. Spring time sends their hormones bonkers which will cause excess humping and dominant behaviour.
