Congrats on your new (LARGE!) bunny!

I will touch on some basics, and hopefully others will chime in with more about the breed.

Feed 1/2c pellets per 6 lbs if that is what the label on the baq of rabbit chow indicates. Do not free feed, or you will likely end up with a very fat, very unhealthy bunny. They can have unlimited good quality hay, and you can help litter train them by placing clay litter in the bottom of the litter box and then filling it with the hay. They will sit in there and nibble, and eventually hopefully learn to do their business there as well.

ALL rabbits chew. Doesn't matter the breed, the size - they just do it. Their teeth never stop growing, so they need to chew throughout their lives. Most pet stores have a variety of wooden toys and huts that you can buy, all are safe for chewing.

Hopefully that helps a bit, and again - congrats on your new bunny!
