    Hello and welcome. Have a look over on the Rabbit Welfare Association's website. Everything you need to know is there! Good luck with your new Bunny.

    Welcome

    indoor bun or outdoors?

    I think the main tips are get a pair of bonded buns
    neuter (male & female)
    vaccinate (myxi, rhd1 & rhd2)
    plenty hay & fresh veg, fresh water always available (bowl is best rather than a bottle). only a small amount of pellets.
    prepare for stress & vet bills.

    Should I get another male or a female?

    there's no rush and rabbits can fight quite badly when they are introduced to each other, it can be quite difficult to introduce a new one sometimes.
    if this is your first rabbit I would take things one step at a time & see how things go with this first one for the time being.

    - just my opinion.

    good luck

    Vaccinate and neuter (even if they are a same sex pair, they’re less at risk of cancer if they are snipped, especially Does). Plus less likely to have hormonally fuelled fights.

    Just take things slow with handling. Begin with letting the rabbit sniff your hand before trying stroking or picking them up.

    Plenty of hay, pellets, veggies and exercise.

    I used to be ‘Jack’s-Jane’ but I have been logged out of that account and I can’t get back in !

    Apologies if my posts read as being blunt. Failing eyesight makes it hard to type out long messages.
