It takes a long time with bunnies. Cornering them only makes them scared of you. Remember that they are prey animals. Respect their cage. Don't ever pull them out or put them in. Let them do that themselves. That will also help them litter train. This is a great article http://www.rabbit.org/faq/sections/shy.html the whole site is like a bible to bunny owners.

no, im not sure about it, i thought it was cute and they probably didnt even put it in, we used to have to cats, they would run thru the house and jump up on the side of the bath, but when it was full, and the sides where wet, welll, you no... we wnded up with very embarresed, unhappy, cats. But ill change it, i can see where your coming from. Actually, i have a few pics of my own pets that i wanna put on, i just dont know how to make them small enuff

and thanks saje, i figured we shouldnt corna them, but i didnt see a lot of what else to do wen its getting dark and we have to get them back in. Ive thought about the prey instincts, so i end up looking stupid, hopping around my yard like a frog, but i can get closer to them that way, i dont look at them either. We have a little dog that loves them, they really like her to, so maybe ill try approaching them when their with her. THanks for all your help.
By the way, their name are Thistle and Willow, Willow is black all over, but white toes and a white spot on her nose...
and Thistle is ginger, she has a white underneath, white around her eyes, on the back of her neck and on ther toes, THERE so addORABLE!!
