Well, one of my friends' bunnies were accidentally bred, and gave birth to 3 babies. I fell in love with one of the males, an albino bunny. I'm debating if I should get him or not... I have 2 other bunnies, a male and a female, and I have an extra cage. The albino is almost 8 weeks old, he'll be ready to sell on Wednesday, I want your opinion, should I get him? I know I could responsibly keep him.

considering your parents already feel the bunnies are currently taking up too much space ( as seen in your previous post) i'd advice against getting a new bunny :)

I agree with [MENTION=26768]Varcoda[/MENTION] and also since your parents want to keep your other two outdoors.

:eek:hmy: I went to give the two bunnies their evening food just now, and I was shocked at what I saw... Baby Blue (The Netherland Dwarf) was found dead.. He was absolutely fine this morning, :(I just don't understand... :sad:

I do thank you for the advice.

Don't weep at my grave,
For I am not there.
I've a date with a butterfly,
To dance in the air.
I'll be singing in the sunshine,
Wild and Free.
Playing tag with the wind,
While I'm waiting for Thee.

Like guinea pigs, rabbits are prey animals and tend to hide their illnesses.
This is one of the reasons why they should be kept indoors where you can interact with them more and notice the subtle signs of illnesses.

Blue was a very beautiful bunny and I'm very sorry for your loss. :(

Maybe I can keep China (Mini rex female) in the basement, it stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and it's right near my bedroom, so I can see them whenever, not like when they're outside, I can't go check on them when it's dark out. Is that a good idea?

Thank you, yes, he was a very handsome bunny. Yeah I'll try to get China back indoors now. Maybe laying off on a new bunny isn't a bad idea...
