How to Make Your Bunny Binky (Bunny Binking Training)

A binky is often an expression of joy, regardless of how your bunny expresses it. Your bunny is far too content to remain stationary. Binkies are often followed by high-speed charming and swooping across the room, which explains why.

You can make your bunny binky by putting your fingers over your head. Then shaking it in the same way a bunny might when binkying. You may try to imitate the binkying motion.

You can also hop a little at the same time to demonstrate your enthusiasm if you are feeling brave. This may encourage your high-spirited bunny to imitate you. Then your bunny might binky more often, but it is not a guarantee.

The most any bunny owner can do to “make” their bunny binky is to provide the best treatment possible. Your pet bunny will feel good enough to binky if he or she receives proper treatment, gets enough exercise and playtime during the day, and eats the right foods.

What is a binky?

If you have a pet bunny at home, and you have seen them making these strange twisty hops all over the living room; don’t be surprised by this behaviour.

While your bunny hops around, don’t assume it’s scared or having a seizure. There is good news! Those strange twisty hops are not a cause for concern; they are simply the sign of a contented rabbit.

Binky refers to a bunny’s unusual twisting and jumping in the air. Bunnies do this because they have a lot of positive energy and cannot seem to contain it. You know you are doing something good if your bunny is binkying all over your house because it is a happy bunny.

While the bunny kicks their feet out, some binkies can look like big beautiful leaps. The bunny could fully turn around in the air if they twist too hard. When other bunnies zoom and walk about, they binky with smaller twitches.

When is Bunny Binky?

A variety of factors can affect when a pet bunny binky is used. Your bunny’s personality, lifestyle, and overall health can all influence how much they binky. Although not every condition must be met to make a bunny comfortable enough to binky, all of these factors will influence when your bunny decides to binky.

Levels of energy. Bunnies are more involved and enthusiastic at specific times of the day, usually in the morning and evening. During these more energetic periods, they will be more likely to be binky.

Levels of energy. Bunnies are more involved and enthusiastic at specific times of the day, usually in the morning and evening. During these more energetic periods, they will be more likely to be binky.

Bunny personalities. Most bunnies are simply quite laid-back than the others, and therefore are less likely to binky regularly.

Bunnies that are young vs. bunnies that are mature. Binkying is much less common in older bunnies than it is in younger bunnies. Mini binkies are more common than full binkies as bunnies get older. Elderly bunnies do not do mini binkies as much as younger bunnies, not because they are unhappy, but because they lose their energy as they age.

Your bunny’s well-being. If your bunny is sick, he or she may not want to be binky. A bunny who is less enthusiastic than normal could be showing you an early warning sign that they are ill. They should be taken to the veterinarian as soon as possible.

Your bunny’s mental well-being. Bunnies who have been lonely, angry, or stressed are less likely to binky often. To keep your bunnies satisfied, it is important to keep them curious and mentally stimulated.

Conditions in the environment. If a bunny does not have enough space, he or she is unlikely to be binky. A slippery surface, on the other hand, will make it difficult for bunny feet to gain traction. Which will be making them less likely to be binky.

How to Make Your Bunny Binky?

Bunny binky is not something that you should force your bunny to do on orders. Binkying is a natural habit that your pet rabbit can engage in once it feels like it.

Indeed, due to how infrequently bunny’s binky, teaching a pet bunny to binky in the same way you would teach it to do some other trick might be near-impossible. Even if you offer your bunny treats after it eats its binkies, it will not learn to equate treats with binkies.

There is no reliable method for making your bunny binky more frequently. No matter how happy an elderly bunny is, he or she is unlikely to start zooming and binkying around the room. However, there are several steps you can take to make your bunny more likely to be binky by making them more relaxed and enthusiastic in their everyday lives.

Step 1: Providing Safety from Predators

You must realize that bunnies are predatory animals. That implies they could be terrified of something. A new noise or sudden movement, such as something falling off a table, can startle or scare your bunny to the point that he flees in terror. Happiness can be achieved by reducing anxiety and providing protection.

Bunnies plan ahead of time where they can hide if a predator approaches. They would feel more at ease if they realize they are within easy running distance of a safe place. When a bunny feels comfortable, it will do more happy things like flopping.

What you should do is to have a hiding place for your bunny. Long tunnels or cardboard boxes with two escape holes fit well. Bunnies like that will not be cornered.

So, providing two exit holes ensures they can still get out. If you have a house bunny, make sure there is a hiding spot in each room. If you have an outdoor rabbit, make sure there are plenty of places for it to hide if it gets frightened.

Step 2: Providing Exercise

Have you heard of the campaign “a hutch is not enough”? Bunnies that are kept in hutches and cages for long periods can become bored, bloated, and angry. Obese bunnies may have fun, but being locked up all day does not allow for much of it.

Obesity reduces life expectancy, causes more illness, and eventually reduces happiness. Wild bunnies run and jump a lot every day. So, it is only natural that domesticated bunnies need exercise to stay happy.

Binky like there is no tomorrow for a happy bunny. There is not much space for binkying in a hutch. You will need to let your bunny out to exercise and have fun to see the happy behavior.

What you should do: It is simple: release them! Bunnies who like to run outside will do so. You can attach a run to your hutch if you are often busy and want to give your bunny space to roam.

You can make it a haven for happy bunnies to enjoy themselves with some patient DIY. When you are at home, you should let your house bunnies out for a walk around the neighborhood. This is to keep them from getting into mischief.

Step 3: Feeding the Right Food

Bunnies love to graze on grass. Bunnies who are content will graze all day. It might seem strange, but bunnies fight boredom by feeding. Providing high-quality timothy or meadow hay is a great way to keep your bunny entertained and happy.

A healthy serving of vegetables will also give your bunny a spring in his step. Pellets make rabbits happy, but too many can contribute to obesity. Which, as previously mentioned, can decrease happiness over time. The same can be said for sugary foods and fruits.

What you should do: Graze on an endless supply of hay. Every day, clean and healthy vegetables should be provided. Reduce the number of pellets you feed your bunny to a manageable amount. Then avoid the temptation to feed more when he or she asks for it.

For a small increase in pleasure, serve fruit and sugary snacks in moderation. Fruits are a healthier option than pre-packaged snacks. You have a rabbit, not a hamster, but no grain treats!

Step 4: Company

It is safer to be in groups, and the more the merrier! Living alone, particularly if your owner is gone all day, can be depressing. Bunnies are capable of falling in love. One of the best aspects of getting bunnies is being able to do that.

Even if your love life seems to be bleak right now, you can give your bunny a chance to find love! Bunnies will play together, clean each other, and binky together.

What you should do: Bunnies love company, but they can be picky about whom they invite over. Why not try a rescue center and adopt a bunny to increase your chances of finding the perfect match?

Most centers will encourage you to bring your bunny in and assist you in finding a pair for him or her. You will be as delighted as they are when you see your bunny flopped on the floor next to his or her new mate. Just remember to take the next step!

Step 5: Spaying and/or Neutering

Most bunnies want to mate and pass on their genes, and instincts can be very powerful. Both the domesticated bunny and the owner may be frustrated by these impulses. Your bunny can exhibit behaviors such as spraying urine or leaving a large number of droppings outside the litter tray.

Unspayed females have a higher risk of uterine cancer. At the same time, unneutered males have a higher risk of testicular cancer. When the hormones kick in, bunnies who got along fine when they were young, could fight. Frustrated bunnies tend to display inappropriate sexual behavior with their toys.

Finally, if you keep a male and a female bunny together, you could end up with an unwanted litter of bunnies. Spaying and neutering your bunnies will help them relax and live a happy life. As a result of this, your bunny might spend more time binkying and less time embarrassing you with their frustrated antics.

What you should do is contact a veterinarian. Schedule an appointment as soon as your bunny reaches the appropriate age. If you have more than one bunny living with you, it is best to act sooner rather than later. Bunnies who clash before being neutered or spayed have a tougher time reuniting.

Wrapping Up

When you have created a healthy place for your bunny to feel happy in, they will naturally make a binky to share their joy and happiness. Though you will not be able to make your bunny binky on command. Playing with them when they are playful will almost always result in your bunny binkying in your hands.

One of the most rewarding and heartwarming moments you will share with your bunny is watching him play with his binky. You are doing a fantastic job as a bunny owner if you notice the bunny binkying.
