There is a pets board in the nesting section.

If you do get a bunny, make sure you have the resources to provide for such a large rabbit.  Those things are HUGE! Smile

That really is one cute chicken!!! If Darling Husband and I move to the country I’d like to have chickens but they freak me out a little. I’m always worried they’ll peck me! LOL!

DH’s parents have a free-range chicken farm. I’ll tell ya, if you ever need your garden weeded, just let the chickens loose in it and they will eat every last weed and fertilize your garden for you while they’re at it, lol. Father-In-Law does this all the time with their orchard and vegetable garden and they always end up with great soil and happy chickens.

@MarryMeTiffany:  Really? It doesn’t hurt? Forgive me, I know nothing about birds, I’m a cat person πŸ˜‰ I’m also a little scared of their talons. I’m a good candidate for owning a chicken one day huh? πŸ˜‰

If you get a rabbit, pleasepleaseplease don’t keep him/her outdoors.  Outdoor rabbits are prone to mites/fleas/ticks/etc, can be attacked by other animals (or have a heart attack and die from fright caused by an animal trying to get into their cage), and they don’t live as long as indoor rabbits do.  

I have had 2 Flemish Giants in my life (my first, a black doe named Dinah, passed away from medical issues. I still have my second, a blue buck named Butters).  My Flemish has his own room (the finished half of our basement), and he lives in a massive dog crate when he’s not running around his room.  

Rabbits are great, and Flemish Giants are wonderful, but I wouldn’t recommend a Flemish as a first rabbit.  They are prone to more health issues (and rabbits in general are prone to a ton of health issues as it is…add increased weight, a longer spine, and being purebred into the mix and it’s an even bigger mess), and they are very big and very strong.  

Also, if you get a rabbit of any variety, make sure you locate a rabbit vet (most vets are not well-versed in rabbit care…rabbits actually tend to be considered an exotic animal when it comes to veterinary care), have money set aside to spay/neuter (there is a VERY high rate of reproductive cancers among rabbits), and have an emergency fund (even with perfect care, many rabbits experience some sort of expensive and/or potentially fatal health crisis at some point in their lives).

Please explore the entirety of rabbit.org before getting a rabbit.  

If you have any questions about rabbits, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

@MarryMeTiffany: That chicken is soooo cute! Adorable! I actually was like “Squuueeee, baby, get it for me!” when I saw it. He just kind of rolled his eyes and looked away. lol
