Talking Getting My First Rabbits- TODAY!

I'm so excited!

We are getting our babies today! Skitty is kind of like a Chinchilla, and Lissy (Felicity) is like a browny color I don't know what it is. I got a huge hutch on a really tall stand so it's easy to clean.

We'll be using petr store hay on top of Old News cat litter in the sleeping area, and the Old News in the play/eating area. Old news is just like Yesterdays News. In my litter tray I mix S.A.M Zer-Odor in with Ricecob bedding (really absorbant) and the bunnies will be fed rabbit pellets, rabbit mix, timothy hay, tomatoes, parsley, carrots, et cetera. I won't give them too much vegies. When they are little I will give them carrots and parsley in small amounts and when they are older, I will make a salad daily and give them assorted things. How does it sound? The rabbits are 8-12 weeks old and very lovely. We're going to train them onto harnesses so we can let them eat fresh grass each day.

I hope I can post photos soon! My father has gone to Sydney, and he won't be back untill Monday, so I'll have to wait a couple of days for photos.

^^

Ricecob bedding? just watch out for that. some litters if aten can lead to a pretty nasty blockage. for example.. most people will tell you to never use corncob. but i dont know what ricecob is. GREAT news bout getting ur bunnies. i am very happy for you. cant wait for pics!

I would advise 2 seperate cages until they have been altered. And even after fixing them, there is no guarantee they will be bonded and go in one cage together. Rabbits are territorial and like their own space, they can fight and even kill if they want their own space.

Congrats on the new buns!

I would suggest however not introducing any kinds of veggies or fruits until they are at least 4 months old. Their little stomachs are still developing, and it can lead to unwanted problems.

Look forward to seeing their pics.. Catherine has great advice too, spaying and neutering also helps to make your pet a happy one..

Congrats! Everyone has given great advice, and I definately recommend spaying/neutering if you haven't already planned to .
