Hello all, I have a few questions for you bunny mummy pros. I am hoping to become a proud bunny mummy within the next couple of years so I am looking to prepare myself for what I will need and the sizes of things. I am hoping to adopt a nethi and a mini lop so was wondering what size of indoor cage I would need as their base. This will have an xpen attached to it whilst my boyfriend or I are either at work or asleep, they will be free range while ever home to supervise, as soon as litter training habbits are in place.

Are they babies or are they already bonded, spayed/ neutered adults?

In general, the bigger the better. Netherlands are particularly active rabbits, and despite their small size, I feel they need as much space as you would give to one of the largest breeds, like a Flemish Giant. I would say 10sqft would be good. My one girl lives in a closet that is 8ft by 2ft, so that is 16sqft. It is a little narrow, but she has lots of toys to keep her entertained.

Thanks for your replies, I don't actually have them yet just doing research for now. They will be bonded so young adults. Will defiantly look into as big as possible.

Hi, Snow,
It's great to research ahead of time to be fully prepared for life with a bunny. I just this minute wrote a reply to someone else that I think you will find helpful, so I am just going to quote myself if you don't mind:
"I just want to suggest that you go to the banner at the top of any page, and click where it says "Bunny Info". There are numerous topics on the basics of bunny set up and care, and you will find many of your questions answered right away. Also, at the top of each of the forum categories, there are posts with red pins next to them. These usually have important information that was provided in earlier posts and were good to keep handy for quick reference."
