        My bunnies are used to drinking from a water bowl, but sometimes the rabbits can urinate or jump into there water bowl. I’m in the process of building one of the rabbit a new bigger habitat and I would prefer not to put his water bowl where he sleeps because he always seems to get his legs in it and wets all the hay so I would like to put the water bowl away from where he sleeps on the ground and give him a water bottle for his sleeping area instead.

        I have heard that a rabbit might not know how to use a water bottle or even know what it is if a rabbit is used to drinking from a bowl?

        Can I still add a water bottle and would he use it?

          I have both a bottle and a bowl in my buns pen. I have the bottle for the reason you mentioned, just as a back up in case the bowl gets spilled or knocked over. They don’t use it much but do occasionally take a sip from it. Most buns figure it out naturally.

            Excellent. I’ll get a couple water bottles later if I get time after work.

              Unfortunately he hasn’t touched his water bottle. He is only drinking from his bowl. His new pen has been set up now so he can now free roam, he has the outside space all to himself. He will be a lot more happier now.

                Glad he has more space now! My buns rarely use their bottle, but I like knowing it’s there.
