    can rabbits get bored of lettuce?

    Yes, exactly. My two darlings like both curly and italian parsely, but prefer cilantro to both. I've never had a rabbit that ate basil or mint, however. Nor bell peppers, for that matter. By the way, I see you're in sunny Buffalo! I grew up from the age of 8 until 17 in Rochester, NY...

    can rabbits get bored of lettuce?

    My two rabbits don't particularly care for romaine, sadly. I feed mine a variety of vegetables, including kale, collards, turnip greens, dandelion greens, carrot tops, brussels sprouts, broccoli, celery leaves, watercress, radicchio, cilantro and parsely. I probably spend about $50 a month on...

    Burdock Root

    Yes, I like it sautéed in butter, but it can be prepared utilizing most basic cooking approaches (steam, bake, sauté, simmer, pickle, etc.). It's used extensively in Japanese cuisine ("gobo" in Japanese) and found often in sushi rolls and salads. I guess I'll have to get some today and let my...

    Who says rabbits aren't smart??

    Digging at sheets and pillows

    Sometimes, you just gotta let bunnies be bunnies. I always keep my pillows well away from my little roommate!

    Digging at sheets and pillows

    All my rabbits have done this, despite being spayed. This is why I've spent hundreds of dollars on inexpensive fitted sheets over the past 13 years that I've kept a rabbit in my bedroom. You can purchase a nice fitted sheet from Walmart or online for about $10 a pop. I consider all this to be...

    How much fruit should I feed my bunny

    All this is why I never eat fruit in front of either of my two rabbits. They'd never forgive me if I did that without sharing with them.

    Parsley for bunnies??

    I typically feed my rabbits cilantro five times a week and italian or curly parsely once or twice a week. I also feed them organic dandelion greens, romaine and occasionally carrot tops or celery leaves (all organic). This is in addition to greens high in oxalates such as broccoli, collard...

    Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus type 2 In Arizona, Texas, and California

    Fantastic info, Blue Eyes...thanks so much for posting this for everyone to study. In our house, we don't allow the wearing of shoes, so hopefully that is already a decent start to protecting my two lovely bunnies.

    Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus type 2 In Arizona, Texas, and California

    I received a phone call from my exotics vet in the Sacramento area inviting me to have my two rabbits receive the Euro vaccine, which they will when it is available in about two weeks. I was advised that it is "at least 70% effective."
