Don't buy your kids a rabbit for Easter. Think of the comitment as the same as a dog or cat, because it basically is. That's a real animal- they have real personalities, can live a long time, and need a lot more than food and a 3x3' cage outside. Rabbits sitting in a hutch all day- imagine that it was a dog or cat. A rabbit in a hutch is bored all day- they sometimes revert to neurotic behaviors like ripping their own fur out. If not neutered, a female has 80% chance of getting cancer. Think about it- this is a real critter that might live over 10 years (Mine have lived 11, 12, and the third is 12 and still alive), not a stuffed toy that you can forget about in the back yard. There are lots of rabbits that need homes, same as dogs that need to be rescued, but you wouldn't keep that rescue dog in a cage the rest of its life, would you? If you have the patience and space in your house- think about a rescue rabbit. Mine were litter trained and funny as heck critters that bounce over for attention.
