    Hi everyone!

    I recently adopted a bunny and she gave birth, the adoption agency had no idea she was pregnant. She gave birth last week and the kits are now 6 days old.

    When I got her her droppings were dark and hard, i've been working on her diet and they are now big and light green from all the timothy hay, and crumble when you push them. So she's going the right way!

    But yesterday evening and this morning I gave her some broccoli along with her chicory and basil. I only just realized that adult rabbits can often handle some broccoli, but the babies might not.

    Is there any chance this might kill them because of bloating, and is there anything I could do to help?

    Thanks beforehand,
