    We once had 21 rabbits. We never bought one. one was found and mum & dad took it in. then the same thing happened, they were in separate cages. it happened a third time.. Dad got the wrong cage to put the new girl in... After that they kinda gave up on separating sexes.

    But we found out one year.. rabbits cope better with flood then they do with heat waves..

    Should have sold the babies lol
    Bunnies have really come up in society.

    When my mum was a kid poor men trapped and ate them.

    Now a cheaper end pet will cost you $25 and higher end 80-150$

    yes very poor bunnies. We had the sprinkler on them for hours during the day. kept changing their water, they had large water dishes. my sister even tried to teach one to swim.
    whey were in the coolest part of the yard, were well shaded.. they just don't cope with heat apparently.

    Maybe because they cost less then a dog or cat? I think rabbits are an awesome pet

    Nah they dont handle it well.

    We get around the 40° Out here in summer, frozen bottles of water, shade and hutches with an enclosed area / heat proofed roof.
    I have resorted to bringing my 4 into the air con and once running a fan outside

    Eta they arent biologically designed to live in a country like Australia so their systems havent evolved to cope with out temperatures etc.

    In the wild this is rectified by a rabbit giving birth and once all kits are born the doe can become pregnant immediately

    we did.. the the vet.. once they were eating size.. instead of paying for treatment for our many other animals... I kid you not in the middle of Sydney on a 1/3 acre block we had:

    1 kelpie X Retriever
    1 Silky terrier
    5 domestic short haired cats
    2 king parrots
    1 cockatoo
    3 budgies
    21 rabbits
    6 goldfish
    3 blackmores.

    When the rabbits dies my sister bought a pair of ducks.. mum told her petshops normally only sell males.. she got a breeding pair.. they maxed out at 5
    the silky passed away. was replaced with a labXrotti
    the fish died, replaced with axalotils
    the budgies got eaten by the cats
    the kelpie passsed away
    the lab x rotti ran way was replaced with a german shepperd x kepie
    then came a mid size terrier

    the terrier apprently had a love of duck meat.

    the kids grew up & moved out.. mum only allows cats in the house now.
