Cage size for 3 buns?

'Ello all,

I recently adopted two rabbits (a dutch and a mini rex) and was wondering how big to make their cage. I plan to add a third rabbit of similar size soon, so I would like to plan ahead and make it big enough to accomodate the third one. On this site it states that three piggies need a cage 30"x62" but I wasn't sure if this could be used for smaller rabbits as well. All three rabbits weigh less than 6-7 lbs each. Thanks for any input!

I believe buns need approximately twice the space of guinea pigs. You're looking at a 4x5 C&C, more is better of course.
 
I would do multiple levels (at least three). If you want to make a C&C cage then it probably needs to be at least 5 x 3 with upper levels. In my opinion it would probably be easier to house three rabbits in a dog exercise pen as you can make it any size and shape you want. Check out this site for condo ideas (broken link removed)

Isn't it hard to bond three bunnies? I thought you ran the danger of splitting the bonded pair up?
 
It can be; I would let the rabbits choose their own friends. You would probably have the best luck going to a rabbit rescue and having them help you find another rabbit and bond it to your pair.
 
i agree with bunnyluv, get a bonded pair 2 join them and see from their :)
