They are very easy to keep. As far as temperament, buy one from a private breeder - it will be more social. Good luck, they are neat little guys!

I like them as pets, we have 5 of them, some have good temperments some have poor ones, I have one that has never raises her quils ever, but the biggest of the females has a tendency to chase your hand around the cage making her little hissing noises. Pretty easy to care for, need a good sized rabbit cage, water bottle, a wheel and something they can sleep in. They are noctornal, so expect to see them out later, never in the morning. As far as food goes, we feed science diet cat food alond with some side fruits and veggies. But different people feed different things. They like thick bedding, and try to handle them as much as possible, once a day if you can. Don’t get one if your to scared to handle them. If the poke you with their quils it does sting a little, squeeze the blood out and the sting should stop.
