Show me your bunnies & birds & chinchillas!

Title says it all :) I'm thinking about getting one of the three mentioned, maybe in the summer. I know I want a bird, but maybe a Chinchilla or bunny with it wouldn't hurt..

I'm all pro Bunnies! I find them friendlier than Chinchillas And they come in more colors, sizes and cuteness. Thats my opinion anyways

This is Murphy! He is my 5-ish year old Holland Lop (we think)

D'aww!! He's so cute!! :) I love the picture of him all sprawled out in the grass!
I had a Holland Lop when I was like, 3, but he died from a hairball :[ I think bunnies are cuter too, but my Mom had a chinchilla when she was younger and loved it so she wants me to get one of them. :P

Get both! Yeah, Murph LOVES to be outside. He lives outside in the summer and in a heated garage in the winter! Works great, he loves it.

Here's Acacia. She's my 5 year old mixed dwarf- character she is <3<3 I'm partial to bunnies because I have owned neither birds nor chinnies. Birds seem like an amusing but unpleasant pet to have - that's my opinion be it uneducated or what. All to those who love them though!
I would get a large breed bunny next, or another mini rex. I love rexes but I think larger breeds are both calmer and overlooked in the rescues!
One thing I suggest, look into the rescues in your area. Most rescues spay and neuter all bunnies going through their care -which is a huge bonus for the price. Chinnie I don't know about spaying but have a whole different care sheet than bunnies ^.^
I cannot wait to see your choice!!

Bosley, Murphy must be really calm to let you have him upside down like that o-o
All these photos make me miss my bunny. :( I'll get one when I move out sometime.
I +1 the rescue thing, pretty much every good rabbit rescue will spay/neuter your bunny for you. Also I think a bunny would be a more social pet than a chinchilla, from what I've heard they tend to be more pets that you have to let approach you on their own terms when they're ready. Of course, birds would be the most social of the 3 xD

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

My friend lost her bunny from holding him upside down. It's actually a defense bunnies have to predators. People call it a "trance" but it's actually bunny going into a bit of a trance to prepare for the shock of death. I could never hold my bunnies upside down, they always freaked out. When I found out m friend lost her bunny I am now devoted to spreading the word.
Some people have to in order to clip nails and teeth but I think it's unsafe.
