I keep my bunny in a large, barred dog kennel. Other things that work are, 1. A rabbit pen, the type made of metal bars that folds up, and attach something to the bottom so he can't lift the bottom and escape under it like mine did. 2. I guess if you got a really big (the biggest you can afford) plastic storage bin, and cut a bunch of really small holes big enough so they can breathe but small enough that they can't chew them. 3. Get the gates used to block off rooms and block off a section of hallway as a cage. A box wouldn't be, the bunny pee would make it all soggy in less than an hour, and it can be chewed through. Now for bunny care. Number one most important thing for bunnies is time outside the cage. As soon as you can afford one a bunny pen might be a good purchase. Until then let him run free around your house and watch him to make sure he doesn't chew anything. He will need a cage, water bottle (not a water bowl, their chin fur can get wet and cause a skin infection), food dish with rabbit food (not hamster/gerbil food, they don't like it), and they must always have hay to eat. Timothy hay is better for them but Alfalfa hay tastes better. Some rabbits will refuse timothy. Also they should eat lots of fruits and veggies. Not raw tomato or apple seeds they will get sick. They need a litter box filled with shavings or hay but not cat litter it makes them sneeze and cough and if they eat it they die. Wood chew toys are needed too because their teeth constantly grow and they need that to wear them down. And that's the basics. But I highly reccomend that you go to your local library or bookstore and get some books about them. There's a lot I skipped. If I wrote it all it would go on forever. A good book is Rabbits for Dummies, 2nd edition. It explains it all.

Rabbits are notoriously picky about their washroom facilities. It might smelly funny to her so she becomes suspicious. Really clean the cage very well and then try litter box training her. Put a small, low sided litter pan of some kind in the corner where she used to go and put some of her pellets, and if you have some, a bit of paper with her urine on it, in the box. Put some of her hay in the litter pan too. This will give her the hint to go there as you have created a premium condition for her picking that spot. Remember they like a clean cage. Clean, clean, clean.

wait to get it till you get the proper cage!!!!!!!!!!!!! taking a bunny home is a big responsibility and they are going to be stressed about environment change, you have to line whatever you get in bedding as well. i hope you "have the money" for food. this makes me mad because if you can't afford the proper things this animal needs, then you don't need this animal. if you stress him in his new make-shift cage then change him to his NEW one you may or may not buy him he will be stressed. DON'T BUY SOMETHING YOU CAN'T TAKE CARE OF. EDIT; idgaf if you are buying a cage the next few days you still shouldn't do that. that doesn't change the fact you are going to stress him. OH and also, don't think you're old cause you're 16. and if you're older sister works in a pet place it seems like shed be more knowledgeable then a bunch of people on yahoo answers right? maybe you should have asked her, and if she has some sense or any knowledge shed agree with me. and here's a thought... BUY A CHEAPER CAGE. omg i bet you never even thought of that. derp

NIC cages are very inexpensive to make, easy to make and roomy. You can easily make one before your bunny arrives if you get the supplies right away. The photos below show what they look like (they were mine). Then the links show how to make them. You don't have to follow direction exactly. The youtube one has cut plywood. I used just a scrap of linoleum for my cage (I just made sure the edges went beyond the cage so bunny couldn't get to it to chew it. These cages are far better than those small petstore cages. A bunny needs much more room than that. The last link lists all the supplies you'll need as well. It would be ideal if you could get everything ready before you get bunny. The move will be very, very stressful for bunny. It would be best to have everything set, put him in his new cage, then leave him alone for 2 full days. Rabbits need time to de-stress and get used to all the new sights, sounds and smells. cage photos: http://i39.tinypic.com/232z60.jpg http://i40.tinypic.com/c3pr7.jpg how to make them: http://breyfamily.net/bunnycage.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bLUDLbZYr4 scroll down on this page to see where to purchase the grids: http://www.guineapigcages.com/cubes.htm needed supplies (and other good care tips): http://binkybunny.com/BUNNYINFO/tabid/53/Default.aspx

I rather have faith which you have a good concept there with the plywood, yet i does no longer conceal it with fabrics. Their claws ought to rather snare on it or they could initiate chewing on it and fall ill. you're ideal to sense uncomfortable putting them on the hen twine, that's no longer good for them in any respect. i might extraordinarily propose which you get that plywood in there as quickly as conceivable. I also have a female lion head rabbit that has a house geared up cage and the flooring in it are plywood, and he or she's in basic terms positive. No splinters or something, and it withstands her scratching too. The hay isn't a foul concept, interior the wild they might have dried grass of their burrows for nesting fabric. So that's virtually organic for them. Congrats on adopting them, i've got accompanied each and all of the pets I even have at my residing house, each and all of the 5rats, 2rabbits and 1dog. i admire all of them, and that i'm happy that i presumed adoption in the previous paying for.

Lettice Originally Answered: What does it mean when a male bunny is on top of a female bunny and his tail is vibrating like crazy?
The male was mating and you likely got yourself a pregnant female rabbit if he mated at least twice! One mating will release the eggs in the female the 2nd will allow the male rabbit to fertilise the female egge What you mum is teaching you is total irresponsible! Why shouldn't I breed my rabbit? First, take a look at our "unwanted rabbit" statistics for the past 3 years, including the number we were able to save. The rabbits we were unable to save are rabbits who most likely died because there were not enough homes for all of them. Unwanted rabbits come in all colors, ages and breeds. They come in friendly temperaments and not so friendly temperaments. Aprox. 75% of the calls we get from people wanting to turn over their rabbits have rabbits between 9 months and 18 months of age. These rabbits are still very young, too young to be unwanted. Too young to die simply because there are not enough good homes for all of them. Too young to die because their owners didn't properly research what living with a rabbit is really like. What happens to rabbits when there are not enough homes for them? Some of these unwanted rabbits are killed for snake or people food are euthanized at animal shelters are dumped in residential neighborhoods where they are chased by children; poisoned by angry neighbors; hit by cars; attacked by dogs; etc... are dumped in the woods or at "bunny colony sites" where they starve to death; die from dehydration, injuries or illness; are eaten by wild animals; are attacked by other rabbits; etc... are bred on a whim creating more unwanted rabbits are passed from home to home, forgotten and unloved, becoming increasingly more depressed and anti-social, being fed improper diets, having their illnesses left untreated because no one wants to spend money on "that animal", finally dying and being released at last from a life that was miserable. There are reasons to breed, very valid ones such as breeding because you want to better a particular breed. If you are going to breed to make money, don't waste your time. Reputable breeders are not getting rich, just ask one how much money they made last year after expenses. Breeding is done because of a love of the breed, not for profit. Reputable breeders are doing their homework and are not breeding simply to create more rabbits. They breed carefully and with a plan in mind. You should not breed rabbits from a pet store or from a person who allowed their mixed breed rabbits have young. Quality rabbits come with a pedigree, were you given one? Have you researched the genetics of the parent's colors so you are going to get "showable" colors? Excellent quality rabbits cost money and can take time to find, can you spend the money and time? Have you researched your area so that you know that the breed you are considering is one that owners in your area actually are interested in? Are you willing to spay or neuter any pet quality rabbits or rabbits with genetic problems before selling so they do not reproduce? How will you place these rabbits, what does it cost to advertise, are you set up to keep any babies that don't sell, etc...? (A pet store should not be an option in 99.9% of the cases!) Breeding rabbits means providing proper housing. Even if you only have two rabbits, and want just one litter, you need 4 cages. One cage for the mother, one for the father, and two cages to separate the babies by sex. Any baby rabbit who does not find a home by 12 weeks old will need their own cage or will need to be altered to prevent fighting with their siblings. A female can have 1-12 babies, average around 3-7 depending on the breed of rabbit. If you needed to do so, can you house up to 10 babies? Not just for short term, think long term, you might not be able to find homes for these babies easily, so be prepared. If you aren't prepared for the responsibility of any of this, you are part of the problem, even if you allow your rabbit to have just "one litter". YOU are responsible for the feeding, housing, vet care, socialization, etc, of EVERY single rabbit you create through breeding. Can you live with that? Can you afford that? Do you have the time for that? Think about it before you breed. Too often we get calls from people who put two bunnies together and now can't find homes for the babies and can't afford to house the teenagers. (Or worse, don't separate the teens so now THEY had babies also. In 2005, we got a phone call from someone with 30 rabbits just because of this.) Don't become a "bad breeder", one who breeds without a well thought out plan ahead of time.
