Andddd if anybody is still around, can I ask why the idea of keeping the buns outside is frowned upon? Do pet rabbits not cope with weather as well as wild rabbits or is it just because one of my bunnies was an indoor bunny for a few years before she became outdoor?

Anyway, thanks everybody for the help!!

Rabbits that are kept indoors form better relationships with us humans, especially if they’re free roaming. Not only that, any little change in behaviour can be more easily spotted so if a bun is poorly, they usually are able to get checked out quicker. They also don’t have to worry about predators  (yes I know they might be safe but if there are predatory animals around, they can still smell them and feel scared) I also personally don’t see the point in getting an animal just to keep it outside. I think it’s especially cruel for a rabbit to be put outside when they are used to being indoor bunnies.
