Hi Ana

I can't give you a clear answer on the leaves, but I do know that the yellow squash themselves are A-OK for a bun to eat

See this Vegetable guide:
QUICK LIST: Rabbit-Safe Foods

Just be sure to introduce it very slowly, in small amounts to your buns. It may not agree with all bunny stomachs equally, so it's best to take it slow.

Take some cute pics of squash nomming, eh?

Some people eat the young leaves, so I would say they are edible. The flowers definitely are.
