fighting female lops

my two female dwarf lops Amber & Honey have not yet been spayed but
they have already started fighting at 4 months old.  It happened
after we had a visit from another female lop (Poppy).  Could the
different scent have caused them to be jealous?  

They share the same cage and one morning I went to see them and the
cage was full of fur.  They come into the house for a play everyday,
I'm wondering wether to get them a cat toy in case they are bored
with each others company.

I was going to get them spayed so they would calm down a little and
maybe not fight with each other, they don't like being cuddled yet either.

It could have been due to smelling the other bunny, but they are at the age
when the hormones kick in and can cause some territoriality and fighting.  Keep
a close eye on them until they are spayed so they don't play too rough:)
