well tomarrow i am going to try to get a
holland lop bunny :P

im guessing the price range is from 25-40$us.
i am asking how much a grounup/babie/adoptable would be.
and i am also asking if i should either by a fencing for it
or square pent house (buy squares, and attach them to make a cage)
basically i want a nice clean set up
(please tell me where to put in my smallish room, on the ground with all its supplies next to it? or what)

but before you answer
i need to say the following that
i have for the bunny already.

a medium size cage(may have to share with my other bunny, due to unfinished hutch,
but dont worry i take out my bunny alot (about 3 hours after i get home))
shredded up paper/store bought bedding
alfalfa/food peletts
long & tall unfinished rabbit hutch (needs roofing, new location, hay, and bottom floor for this new bunny)

Google got that. Easy.

Oh and from that...
Dont put one with another in the same cage. their known to be territorial.
Something to bear in mind, assuming it's true.


If you intend to let them run around freely in the garden, fencing would be the way to go. Either way, assuming by penthouse you mean this sort of thing (http://www.swish-uk.com/shopimages/products/thumbnails/rabbit%20hutch%20penthouse.jpg), one of those is good for the winter months.

yes basically i can get a new bunny (my mom will let me, but my dad wont, but he is easing up and my mom said just wait for like 2 weeks-1month) and yes i know they cant be int he same cage unless from the same litter, so i said the bottom part we are fixing up is for the second bunny.
are bunny hutch currently is basically just a big wooden/wired cage with stands on the side,we are fixing it up before winter, (boarding the sides up, adding roof, adding hay, and a supply box attached at the side) it is safe due to the fact that he has been out there for 1 month and hasnt gotten hurt, (we check on him every 45-1hour just in case) and as for the fencing, we are going to wait till winter is over, and ill see if my mom is up for re-planting her garden, she enjoyed it for awhile. as for the run/play time we let thumper run around the house and we bot him a nice shaky toy that jingles every time he moves it :P (sadly he chewed the stringy part off lol)

and yes we contacted a breeder/found a holland rabbit in a pet store :P i dotn think they will sell due to the fact that 10 kids went up to the rabbit pen and asked, their parents went "no, they are too messy/smelly" so sad :(


so basically my new question is,
how do i keep the water/cage warm (so the water doesnt freeze) and i think i found the sollution for hte cage to be warm, wont lots of hay help it be worm, the only thing that i am scared is that my bunny is currently litter box trained and the box contains shredded paper/alfalfa, he eats the alfalfa while he is doing his buisness, but i am scared that he will think that he is in his litter box and that means once he is out of the winter i will have to retrain him to go potty in his box :| and i dont feel like ripping out/picking up rabbit fecies for a week again.
