As the topic says, is your rabbit castrated?

Yes both of my rabbits are. Tiger wasn't until he was over a year old, but Dougie's previous owners had him done at just a few months. I'm not sure if this has affected their personalities, or it's just a coincidence, but Tiger still try's to hump my friends girl rabbits when they come to stay with us for their "holidays" whereas Dougie has never shown interest in humping anything, to be honest it's like he doesn't understand it at all. My friend's girl rabbits have all been done, yet they hump each other all the time!

Yep, both my rabbits are fixed! Benjie was castrated before we got him, as he's a shelter rabbit and they make sure all their rabbits (at least the males, they've started castrating some females as well) are fixed before leaving for their new home. We decided that Luna should be too because of the large risk of cancers in female rabbits. She's moulting more often than before, but other than that we haven't noticed any behaviour changes.

My rabbit is castrated. At first I got him as a breeding buck but then he started to go blind and he tested positive for Encefalitozoon cuniculi and after he got completely blind he got castrated (on my computer table :P), mostly because he really loved the dog and sprayed him with pee all the time and didn't leave him alone.

One of nineteen is castrated, happily living together with one of my elder breeding does and they absolutely adore each other. I plan on castrating three or four more of my boys, but I haven't gotten to it yet. After that I plan to finally put more of my rabbits in pairs/groups. I have so few does and few of them get along so I hope maybe the guys can charm the ladiesLaughing

All the three of my rabbits are castrated. My little bunny girl went all crazy by the hormones allways angry and horny, hehehe.... The morning when she woke me up by sniffing on my head and then turning her but towards my head and splashing pee all over me I did decied that it's time for you and me to go to the veterinary today. Mohahaha. Unfortuantly , I do have a very similar story to tell about my second rabbit. He to, did pee me right in my face, grrrrr. But sweet revenge, they all got under the knife later.
