Hutches can be found at tractor Supply. I get rabbits from my local flea market in Cleveland

See if you can find a hutch on craigslist or facebook before buying a new one. Rabbits are very fragile. You can kill it by scaring it. After people lose a few, they sell the supplies and no more rabbits.

I agree as well. Rabbits as pets for kids don't last long.

My wife had a rabbit. Thing was smart. would jump back into its cage 3 foot off the ground to do its business in the litter box and jump back out to play with the dogs. Pretty cool pets but they can stink

For some reason I'm thinking there was a post on here that the OP was willing to give 50 bucks to the person that took his pet rabbit. Do a search.

I've got one running loose in the back yard you can have. You have to catch him. My daughter got him as a pet and had him in a cage out in the grass when he got out.

My kids just got 2 about 3 months ago. Letís just say one is dwarf and the other not so much. They actually stay in our house. No smell but my wife and kids clean the cages constantly. I was against a mean smelly rabbit but they saved up and paid for them.

My daughter actually purchased a leash for hers. Lol.

Don't get a Flemish Giant. We had one turn into an attack rabbit. I finally turned it loose down in my pasture. A few days later the neighbor called and asked if we were missing a rabbit. He said he held out a carrot and the crazy rabbit ran up and bit him on the hand.

Here's a short video of him just before he was set free.
