    Opinions on Compressed Bales - any difference for the rabbits ?

    Any schools of thought that compressed hay isn’t good for rabbits ? I just remember early on hearing not to use Compressed Bales. Is it maybe just because you can’t see what else is stuck in with the hay? Is it just hard to pull apart ? Is it more “chopped” than regular bakes ? I am looking to...

    Rabbit safe chew deterrent? Lemon , Vinegar?

    I bought a plastic wicker cubby plant stand for my rabbit. I took a chance bc it was a little $$, but I observed him and he seemed to just go in it & not chew it. Well now he's decided he DOES want to chew it! He doesnt "eat" it, but destroys it. It has a VERY LARGE "window" in it now! I...

    I would LOVE any PHOTOS or IDEAS for housing TWO unbonded buns?

    I have two unbonded buns and they both SHOULD be whole house buns, but they can't be out together. I have tried to find a home for my second with no luck yet. I am struggling to fine a creative way to house them both. I love the cool setups - but I don't have much room for two large...

    Recommendations for Alfalfa Hay ????

    I have a young foster still on Alfalfa Hay and every one I've bought so far is as though it's "chopped" and ground with hardly any stalks. Do most people put theirs in a BOWL ? What brand actually have a little "spaghetti" for the buns ??!!

    Question about Adult rabbits and Alfalfa hay as a TREAT?

    I bought some small (3x4") boxes that I want to stuff and leave as a busy toy/treat for them. Can I stuff it with Alfalfa Hay for just an occasional treat? Or am I opening a Pandoras box by letting them get a taste of it again in their adulthood (1 1/2 yrs old) If so, Any other suggestions...

    Bonding reboot, can experienced bonder offer advise?

    I am reintroducing my 2 buns. They are 15 months old, neutered 6 months ago, original attempts failed. I think I may have tried too soon after neutering and they tornadoed. They have lived separately now since Jan 1. We have been laying them next to each other for about a week on a bed in a...

    NAILS! Do some rabbits just NOT need their nails trimmed?

    My Holland Lop is just over a year old. For the most part he is free roaming inside and only runs on wood or carpet. I have tried various times up until now to trim his nails. The front go pretty well - I snip a little off, but with the rear - it just seems there's nothing to trim before I...

    Six year old rabbit started not using litter box ?? Could it be....

    Could this be a territorial thing? My daughters rabbit, Bubba is in a cage - but the door is kept open in an open carpeted room. He he doesn't leave the room (bc he doesn't like the wood floor!). His litter box is in his cage. and he was always good about using it. He started pooping and...

    Bonding - 1 bun wants it , 1 bun doesn't - At wits end.

    Again, I ask for any new schools of thought on this. Yup , STILL trying! Both males, both neutered, 10 and 12 months old. If I have them together for a session, Murphy ignores Lionel unless Lionel makes his way over - and usually tries to get a nip in before it turns into a tornado. There...

    Training / Stopping a Behavior Question

    I have been successfully clicker training and teaching tricks. I am also working on the “up” and “down” command to invite the bunnies on the couch with us. The problem is my Holland Lop (Mr. Get-in-Trouble) has discovered he can jump on the couch then to the HIGH table behind it ( I know buns...
