fighting rabbits

July 14, 2009 | By sharon e. | 3 comments

I have a momma rabbit that has 6 kits and she recently wants to fight with them all. Scarlett gets along with noone the last 4 days. She is not sick. They are all spayed and neutered. I don't really want to put her by herself but I don't know what else to sdo. I have raised rabbits for many years and its usually me that gives the advise but I have tried anything possible and nothing works. I don't want to come home from work and have to stictch up rabbits like I do at work. Her kits are a year and a half. I mean some days one can be moody but this is getting ugly. Momma's name is scarlett. He kits are vanna, peter and ashton, these are the ones she picks on lately. roxie and jasper are also hers and she fights with them to. Ashton and peter fight with roxie I can'trearrange them either. Any suggestions.

I agree, putting her by herself probably would be best. Sorry =(

Sounds like you have an INCREDIBLE territorial female on your hands. Sounds like putting her by herself would be the best thing for everyone. Something you might try, let her be by herself for a couple of days to about a week maybe, dont let her see anyone. Then I would introduce them back together as if it where the first time they where meeting. Sounds like she feels like her space is being invaded, even if they are her own and even if they've been with her for a while. Rabbits dont usually care about that. As you know, female are A LOT more territorial than males are. Females can be a pain in the behind some times. I would try the re-introductions and see how that goes. Maybe if they forget about eachother and they are re-introduced, it might take some of the hostility away for everyone. I dont know what kind of cage set-up you have. If you have anymore questions or need anymore help, lemme know. Please let me know how it goes though. Good luck :)
