Hello! We are talking about getting my daughter a bunny for Christmas. She has been begging for one for months and now she keeps telling us she will just ask Santa. Anyways we have no objection to having a bunny but we want it to be an outdoors one. We have a barn that our chickens are in and can easily keep the rabbit out there with them. We can even put the hutch in the barn during cold months. After speaking to a lady at the local farm store she said that the bunny's they have are too young to be placed outside and wouldn't make it through the winter and we would have to keep it inside until spring. I was curious if this was true or not? I have no electric in my coop so I can't heat it. I could put the hutch in my garage temporarily and use a heat lamp (not sure if that is a good idea or if there is a better way). My dad suggested waiting and getting her one for Easter. I don't mind waiting 'til spring but she has been begging and I would really like to surprise her with one Christmas morning. She even has a named picked out already for when "Santa" brings it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Chickens I can handle, bunnies are new territory for us. Thanks!
