I have had many people ask for a list of items to purchase when preparing for their rabbit to come home. This page will be edited as time goes on, but I wanted to provide a few links to help people purchase what they need. Local feed stores are always a great place to check for many of these items as well, as they often provide similar items at a lower cost. Commissions may be earned off the links posted below.
There are many available options on the market for bunny cages, both conventional and unconventional. Each bunny of this size needs a minimum of 24"x24" of space. If multiple bunnies are living together, they would need double that space. Below are a few ideas for acceptable bunny habitats.
Food and Bedding
Currently we feed Purina pellets to our bunnies. Large bags of food can be purchased for much cheaper at most feed stores, so I would recommend checking there before ordering off amazon!
We also feed timothy hay daily, this is the brand we are currently using.
As far as bedding, with longhair breeds, shavings will need to be avoided to prevent tangling or matting. Livestock pellet bedding is the safest for longhair breeds, and also great for absorption if your cage has a pull-out tray, This is another item that can be purchased cheaper at a local feed store.
All of our babies are used to using the litter box. We use these paired with the livestock pellet bedding.
Brushes are essential for both breeds raised here. Below is a list of recommended tools.
