Hi! And welcome to Pet talk. It sure seems like you want alot of pets :D

Bunnies are wonderful pets, but are a HUGE responsiblity. They need at LEAST a half hour of out of cage time EVERY day. They also require alot of cage / litter box cleaning. Bunnies will kick there litter outside of there litter box and this will need to be cleaned up. They sometimes will destroy things like your carpet by eating or digging it. You have to bunny proof any room the bunny will be in. Bunny proofing is when you hie all the wires or other dangerouse things. They genrally like a friend (although not all do) and getting two is nice for them to have a companion and they will get into much less trouble! Most bunnies shed like crazy so you have to get used to liveing with hair, and alot of it. Bunnies need hay 24/7 and there pellets will need to be regulated or they don't necesarly need any unless under the age of one year. If the bunny is under the age of one year then they will need Alpha hay and un-limited pellets. Once they hit one year they will need Timothy Hay and there pellets regulated so they don't get ot plump. Vegtables are a nice treat, some beleave they should have them every day while others beleave only as a treat is good. Bunnies can become mean if not well socialized and will become destroctive if bored. Bunnies genrally live to be 8 or 10 so they are a life time comitment. Bunnies will need to be kept in a wire cage, NIC cubes are nice cages because you can build them to any size/ hieght or to fit any where. Dog Crates or custom made bunny cages are great also.

Some things you might want to ask yourself.

Why do you want a bunny?
Where will you keep your bunny?
Where will you be in 10 or 12 years, can you still have the bunny?
Do you have the time to give the bunny?
Do you have the patience to work and train the bunny?
What dangerouse does your household have? (Dogs with high prey drive) How are you willing to change this?
Are you willing to bunny proof?

I have two wonderful bunnies who are the loves of my life. (see my siggy)

Rabbits are the best!!!
I got one then had to breed them so i could make other people as happy as i was.........but then my male ended up beeing a female AFTER i got my second rabbit then i got a third (a male) then i bred them and ended up 8 times happier!

Dont get overly crazy like i did ;) lol!
