I've started my research on rabbits because the whole family has expressed an interest. Thing is, like with everything else, I'm getting conflicting information. On one hand some never leave their crates and eat pellets their whole lives.... the other hand says they need a run for hopping & jumping a few hours a day, grass is preferred and that they should eat little pelleted food and instead mostly fresh greens. Then there is the thought that they should live inside the house because temperature swings disturb them, but the ones at my daughters school live outside like the chickens year round in cages...? Plus most of the people on here that i've read post about their rabbits living in cages outside. We just want a rabbit for the cute cuddly factor, none of us really think the mini rabbits are cute and we definitely like the LOP (floppy) eared rabbits. And if we should get two for company for eachother we definitely would want the same gender. What's the scoop?
