Would like more info on my brown rabbit

by Cody
(Magnolia, Texas )

It is a brown rabbit with a little bit of white on the side of it and he is pretty small when he is balled up. When he lays out he is between 1 to 3 feet long - I haven't really measured. He poops a lot, I don't know if that helps any. Also he prefers to lay on the wire bottom of the cage more so than the towels I would put in there for him.

Also I would like to know how to cut the nails a little bit without hurting the rabbit. Even when I have the towel in there he still prefers the wire bottom. Also I would like to know how big he will be getting. So I know whether or not to upgrade to a bigger cage for him or not cuz I'm gonna be building him a homemade one here soon so that it is impossible for another animal like stray dogs raccoons or anything else to get in there and harm him.

More info on Brown Rabbit

You are describing a cross-bred rabbit, meaning its sire and dam were of two different breeds, or even cross-bred rabbits themselves. This makes it well-nigh impossible to predict how big your rabbit will be when it is full-grown. When in doubt, you may as well go bigger with the cage/hutch.

And yeah, all rabbits poop a lot, lol -- I hope you like gardening, cuz the poo makes great fertilizer.

Rabbits tend to prefer wire if it's hot outside. They stay cooler on the wire. Wouldn't be a bad idea to put a slotted plastic resting mat in your rabbit's hutch. You'll find them at our Rabbit Supplies Store (https://www.raising-rabbits.com/rabbit-supplies-store.html) under Pet Supplies.

You can trim rabbit nails with a fingernail trimmer if the nail is not too thick, or with a pet nail trimmer as the rabbit gets older. Like with dogs, try to avoid the quick. If you cut it by accident, the rabbit jerks and then bleeds. No worries, it heals quickly.

Good luck,
