Well, yes, does do hump each other, that's a dominance thing, they do it to establish and maintaining the pecking order.

Check their genders anyway, it's so common that rabbits get missexed even by experienced people :roll: that there's always the possibility that one isn't what it's supposed to be.

Turn each of them over and look at the genitals. A sexually mature buck has rather obvious testicles.

There's a fairly good picture here:
