I ended up with a rabbit that someone's kids outgrew/lost interest in. Although I think most rabbits are cute, I'd never had an interest in owning one. But I figured his life here would be better than the tiny cage he'd been living in.
Ours has a very nice hutch, and a large penned area within our largest chicken run. I use a plug in dog water bowl for winter water. Ours is about 8lbs, and seems to enjoy cold weather much better than hot weather.
I was scared the first time I saw reddish stains in the snow - thought the rabbit must have a UTI or something. After research, I saw that its fairly common for rabbits to sometimes pee orangish/pinkish/reddish urine. I wish I'd known THAT...lol. Also, because ours is male, he will sometimes spray/urinate when I go to put him back in his run (because we let him run around the yard sometimes) - a friend told me neutered rabbits won't spray like that - but in my area a rabbit neuter costs about $220...so this boy won't be getting neutered!!
If I was actually buying a rabbit from someone, I would choose a female myself. Of course maybe females have other "cycle" issues??? Good luck with your bunny!
