Rabbits are lovely pets to have. A rabbit is tame and playful, and yet also social. However, it does take a lot of work to take care of a rabbit. Like all pets, rabbits need a clean, healthy environment and the right kind of food in order to thrive.
Keep your rabbits indoors. Some rabbit breeders prefer outdoor living quarters, as it allows rabbits to experience fresh air and sunshine, however, keeping your rabbit outdoor can scare and overwhelm your rabbit. Furthermore, experts say that because rabbits are social creatures, they might benefit more from being indoors and around humans.
If you decide to keep your rabbits outdoors, it's important that they are kept out of the sun, cold and rain.
Outdoor rabbits need to be given extra bedding when it's cold out. If temperatures dip below freezing, consider moving the rabbit hutch to a more protected environment, like a garage or shed.
Be aware that being outdoors leaves rabbits vulnerable to predators--even the sight of a predator can cause heart attacks in caged rabbits.
Rabbits can also catch diseases if they're housed outside.
Choose a proper cage. Consider the size of the cage, so your pets have enough room. Rabbits can get sore hocks on any surface if not cared for properly. Making sure your rabbit has a clean surface to walk on is important to prevent sore hocks and other foot issues.
Cages should be large enough for your rabbits to stand upright, lie down, and move around freely
