No, don't worry- they do not live in a green laundry basket. We put them in it to take photos.
They all are so sweet though and well tempered. We have them trained to lie on their backs from the time they are about a few days old so they will be more relaxed being handled by just about anyone when being held the normal way.
They live in a very nice large hutch made out of recycled chicken wire and wire mesh screen and wood recycled from our tree house that we tore down.
My guy keeps saying he will build another newer tree house.
I tell N., "When you grow up then you can help Daddy build the tree house, because that's probably how long it will take." My guy has great intentions. I'm sure some of you other Mom's know what I mean.
So E. is hoping that now that the babies are 8 weeks old she will be able to guess which one is a male (sometimes it's not so easy to tell, we have been fooled before) so she can have another future Daddy bunny. We have one male and three females among the adult rabbits.
Rabbits are actually cheaper to keep as pets than many other animals. You don't have to take them to the groomer, like a dog and you don't have to buy them shoes, like a horse. Although, E. would love to some day have her own horse. When she was little she thought she could just move our fence farther back into the woods and keep a horse in her daddy's storage barn and that was as simple as it was to get and keep a horse. That's why she now keeps bunnies.
