We got our two girls from the local Rspca rescue center.

And were advised that these two had been living together for some time.

And that it would be normal for them to have the domminance disputes that they had when they first moved into their new home with us.

Well they seemed to have now sorted themselves out, and they talk to each other, and even seem to miss the other, when one is taken out of the hutch.

When it comes to feeding though, they still tussel over food, snatching it from each other, and blocking each other & headbutting etc.

Another thing that we've noticed is that they dont cuddle each other, and often sleep apart. Or facing each other.

Is this normal ?. or is more time needed?.

Thanks

Their behavour is just like Dindy and Cupcakes, some days they are more cuddley to each other and share thier food, other days they are competing for the best bits and the softest place to sleep. The most importantant thing is that they are not fighting each other.
