Hello everyone.

Hi, I am new to this board.
My family and I have just bought a bunny yesterday.
This is our first bunny and we already love her. We do not know what type she is (bout her at a market from a breeder.) my sister and mom didnt ask her what kind she is. i will post some pictures in a little and see if you guys can help me determine what breed she is. She loves running around a jumping in the air but she hates being picked up. nobody in my family really knows anything about house rabbits so i have taken it upon myself to research about them and learn all i can to care for my rabbit as best i can.

She is unspayed and about a month old. does she have to be spayed? and if we were to get another rabbit and we do not want them to breed would the best choice be an altered male, unaltered female, or an altered female? thanks everybody

Maybe it is an Angora rabbit, but it looks smallish. It could be a dwarf rabbit.

It's a very cute bunny! Yes, rabbits do need to be spayed, although as young as your bunny is it is still possible that it's a male. Missexing is common in younger rabbits, especially from sources like markets.

Generally, the best choice for a companion for a spayed female is a neutered male, although each bun has their own personality, of course! Your best bet is to have your rabbit spayed, wait for her to heal and for her hormones to settle down, and then visit a local rabbit rescue to do some bunny "dating" to see which rabbit your rabbits likes.

I'd recommend reading rabbit.org for care information on rabbits since you're a newbie. Make sure your bunny has unlimited hay!

We are as gods to the beasts of the fields. We order the time o' their birth and the time o' their death. Between times, we ha' a duty. - Terry Pratchett.

Hi and WELCOME!!
Very lovely bunneh there
Any questions you have will be answered here, unless its emergency. I wish you a fantastic stay here. I learned ALOT and continue to learn about bunnies, its a never ending journey. Spaying will help calm her down and make it easier to bond her to another bunnie as well as train her. Good luck

Hello and Welcome!!!
I got my bunny from the humane society and they were discouraging me from purchasing my bunny as they thought she was socialized and wouldn't be good around kids and suggested others. After my research, I read that spaying helps calm them down, and with my bunny, it's very true!!! She's a great little bunny who hops into my kids laps and lets them pet her now.
