    Picky 15 week old

    I got my bunny at a petstore (I have no shelters close to where I live) that sadly didn't really give their rabbits hay. Now she doesn't eat any hay at all. But I've been hesitant to take away pellets since she was underweight when I got her. I have tried: Rabbits salad sprinkled into her...

    What quantity of pellets do you feed?

    Hello I am interested to know how much pellets (if any), you feed your rabbits daily and do you give it in one sitting or more? Also would be helpful to know what size your bun is. I’m particularly interested in small-medium as that is what I have :) Thank you in advance for any info?

    Bunny care

    Is it okay to give my bunny unlimited pellets while I’m on vacation? He is only a few months old and my dad is going to come once a day while I’m on vaca. I just don’t want him to go into GI stasis. He also eats a lot of hay. If someone can let me know that would be appreciated.

    Should I decrease pellets for my rabbits?

    So I got two new rabbits. At their old home all they are are were pellets. They are holland lops and got a third of a cup of pellets a day. I am starting to feed them unlimited hay now which they really seem to like. Should I cut back on pellets or not?

    Introducing a older rabbit to hay.
