Yes so do the ones who stay with us while their owners are away

Biff definitely prefers a bowl, and hates bottles but Brambles isn't fussed.

Jaffa uses a bottle - all attempts at changing to bowl are failing and have resulted in wet paws and ears!

Bowl. Betty ignores the bottle but she has one just in case. Iggy used to tip the water up and sit on it and it frightened me to death that they would get dehydrated.:roll: Now he's gone, i guess its just habit.

Bottle bowl for me. I know I'm always banging on about them but they genuinely are my best ever rabbit purchase.

Just like drinking from a bowl for the rabbits, but they can't be spilled, pooped in or stood in, ears don't get dunked in them and it's easy for me to carry them along with my chicken's water from the tap to the garden.

Mine like a big bowl of warm water! They would turn up their noses at a bottle.

Estelle and Frankie drink out of a bowl, a bottle wouldn't stand up to the rigors of Estelle when she is thirsty!!!!:lol::lol:

Bowl, all of mine used to have bottles but would spend so long drinking from them I changed and they refuse to use bottles now. I only give Donny and Lola a bottle in case either the bottle or bowl freeze. They ignore it though :lol:

Mine have always had bottles, but recently Lola completely went off hers and acted like she had no idea what to do with it. Cue a vet trip to check her over and he could see no physical reason why she would not use it. She took to a bowl immediately, and has not used a bottle since. She had always drunk oddly from a bottle, so I don't know if she did something that put her off, if was weird.

Mine have both, and much prefer bowls.

Both as we have a lot of buns with dental problems and they can't always drink from a bottle tube when they have a spur forming as sometimes it can be to painful.

Bowls preferred, mine have both so they have a choice. Though always opt for bowl when I've seen them drinking.

All mine have bowls. Dont like plastic for them to drink out of (I know you can get glass bottles). They all seem fine with bowls.

scooter prefers bowls, but he throws temper tantrums when u dont feed him on time or you touch his quilt.

Never touch the quilt :shock: :lol: dont ask why if u touch and its not flat or uncreased he has to smooth it out the way he likes.

Bowls, I can imagine bottles would be very frustrating to drink out of! :shock:
