All great advice here. I have a rabbit now, she's 7 years old now! (I forgot to celebrate her bday I just realised!)
Tip: adopt spayed/neutered
rabbit. It's cheaper for you and easier in the long run since hormones will have already died off. Acacia took about a full year of me having her before her hormones died off post-spay. It was ridiculous, she was very moody and somewhat aggressive.
I fully support indoor house rabbits as pets. They are smart, contrary t popular belief, and you can train them with a clicker or food rewards. http://www.youtube.com/user/fuzzfarm
I keep Acacia in a closed top NIC "condo". It's made out of those cubes from target and is 3 long, 2 wide, 3 high. (I'll show pics after work) I used to have open top pens for her and my other rabbit years ago and I would go in and sit down with them but since moving and getting my current cat I need to have her completely safe.
Rabbits CAN live outside but it's like chaining a dog to a dog house in my eyes. When it's out of sight, it's out of mind. then there's weather, predators, disease. Lonliness. Rabbits are social animals and like to bond with another rabbit. If you cannot get another rabbit, for whatever reason, then keep your rabbit inside and he'll bond with you. Talk to him, sing to him, sit with him. Th bonding process can take time depending on the rabbit. Be patient.
It's rewarding to have a little bunny. Getting to know them is fun because did you even know bunnies made sound?!?
