The lady we live with decided to ignore it since we weren't really hurting one another. She put us back in our cage, kept a careful eye on us and otherwise didn't intervene. I'll admit that we struggled with putting aside our differences, it took us over a week to stop bickering, but eventually the dust settled. We may still be guilty of the occasional mount but to be honest it's just a bit of silly fun now.
See, we're friends!
Tayto says "Hey look, I've got a new buddy!".
Please don't forget to check back in on us soon!

Glad to hear things have settled down. I haven't had much luck with adult pairings, myself, and am always glad to see one work out.
ETA: just watched the hand-feeding video, and Reese sure is a well-behaved little cutie. I love how he keeps wanting to put his paw on your finger while eating. And, that last frame of him sitting just inside the hutch door should, well, be framed.
I've been pretty fortunate, even with boys. Only once was an intro a full out failure and it was when I attempted to introduce a third male to an already bonded pair.
He IS very well behaved. He's an excellent snuggler too.
His front incisors have all grown back now. I was surprised by how quickly they grew in again.
At first I was afraid... My last memory of being in a box and outdoors involved a move - I'm just finally comfortable and settled in to my new home, I certainly wasn't interested in moving again! Thankfully we didn't go far, we were just a few feet from the front door when she set the box down. We remained in the box for a short while and adjusted to all the new smells and sounds, when we began to feel comfortable we were lifted gently out of the box and set down on a soft fuzzy fleece blanket.
At first we ran and hid under a little wooden hidey but eventually I became curious about was was beyond the hidey and blanket. As I crept to the edge I noticed a lot of green stuff, it reminded me of lettuce but grew upwards from the ground.
"Hey, what is this stuff?" I wondered.
Of course I did what any wise and fearless cavy would do. I ate it. It was tasty so I kept munching away. Eventually Tayto became interested too.
"Is it safe out there? Is that stuff worth coming out for?"
He joined me and we both grazed. The human sat next to us and watched us very closely. She was a little concerned about our lack of reservation - we just helped ourselves to whatever was within mouths reach.
Eventually we had had our fill. We huddled together back inside the hidey and took a moment to enjoy the sunshine on our faces. We enjoyed our time outside, I hope we get to go out again soon.
