Frequently Asked Questions
How do you care for a bunny?
What do bunnies need?
We have an entire list of supplies and food that we use - and have used for years! You can also purchase directly from Amazon on our "Supplies" page.
What to do when you bring your new bunny home?
Bunnies may be nervous being in a new environment, and do best with calm, gentle energy. Young children are often and understandably very excited to meet the new addition to the family, but they should be encouraged to be calm and use gentle voices if the bunny seems nervous. We suggest bringing the bunny inside and letting them hop around for awhile to explore the area and satisfy their curiosity. They tend to become much more relaxed after exploring.
Which gender bunny should you choose?
In our experience, both genders make super sweet bunnies. Bunnies have different personalities, just like dogs and cats. Some babies are more playful, and some are more calm and will sit in someone's lap for hours completely content. Usually when bunnies get closer to adulthood (6 months) they lose their baby energy and become much calmer, and enjoy more cuddles.
Should you get more than one bunny?
It is highly recommended to spay/neuter if planning to house multiple rabbits together (please see next question). Rabbits can be completely content on their own, and we don't personally feel as though they need a partner to be happy. However, they can also be content with a buddy. They just don't NEED a buddy to be a happy bun. Bunnies can actually form a "bond" with another, which is a very special thing to witness! It's much easier for older bunnies to accept new bunnies that are babies, and bunnies that are spayed/neutered are also easier to bond with another (see below).
Should you spay/neuter?
The general consensus is that spaying/neutering ensures a bunny is much less hormonal and therefore has a better temperament with other bunnies, and also extends the bunny's life. If you are choosing to have more than one rabbit, and you are choosing two rabbits of the opposite sex, you will definitely want to spay and neuter, for obvious reasons. If choosing more than one rabbit of the same gender, spaying/neutering may also reduce the chances that the bunnies do not get along due to hormonal/territorial reasons. Boys may also spray if they aren't neutered, so that may factor into your decision as well.
Are our bunnies litter trained?
Yes! If you reserve one of our bunnies, they will already be using a litter box by the time they are ready to go to their new homes. When they are in their new environment, some bunnies pick up a new litter-box system right away, and others may need a bit of coaxing. If your bunny doesn't immediately use their new litter-box, try moving the box into the corner of their area that they are using as a bathroom. You can also place a hay rack above the litter box, because they do a majority of their bathroom business while munching.
Do we offer transport services to bring the bunny/bunnies to you?
Yes! We may be able to arrange transport for a meetup/dropoff for a transport fee. Transport fees are typically $100 per hour driving distance from us ($100 per 60 mile distance from us) which covers gas, vehicle wear-and-tear and time we have to take off from work.
