We have a new addition to our family!
We are so in love with him he is just over 2 months old.
My question is:
I was told you can toilet train rabbits.... how??? I have no idea where to start but i really really want to try so he can hop about without me chasing him around with a dust pan and broom!
Any advice about this and anything else that will make him happy would be greatly appreciated!

very easy to toilet train. Wait for him to poop and put it in the kitty litter tray and show him. Thats all it took me. make sure to completely clean any messes so he cant smell it anywhere else

Thank you! Any hints for not chewing cords etc?

Oh he is gorgeous!!
Our bunny litter trained herself. Pretty much we just did the same as above.. That didn't really work though, she chose a different spot (a corner of her hutch) and so I put her litter tray in that spot and that was it! So keep an eye out for where he is choosing to poop.
Rubbing lemon juice on cords could work. It initially deterred our bunny but now she does try to chew cords, but only white ones, haha. We just try to keep them out of reach.
Good luck, enjoy. Bunnies are fantastic pets!

Do you have carpet? If not, try putting bunny down on a picnic mat for play time sometimes - it gives them traction to do the bunny dance - where they run around like crazy and jump and twist in the air. It's how bunnies express their happiness.

Our bun had a tooth accident early on which led to malocculsion (sp?) Making cord chewing almost impossible before he had his incisor surgery which made it completely impossible.
Before then we hid most cords behind furniture and only let him out when he could be watched. All that said, he has never really been interested in cord eating.
If you can get him an unpeeled Willow ball to chew on, my bun would go nuts for his.
