I'm also trying to decide on a name- right now my ideas are Starling, Ember, and Dahlia. Which one of those names do you guys like? Do you have any other name suggestions? :)

She looks like a lop eared version of Tu Shen! So cute! I definitely vote Dahlia.

Hello!
I am getting my first bunny this week (I'm really excited!) and have her meals planned out - 1/2 cup veggies and a little pellets in the morning, and the same in the evening, with hay accessible throughout the day. However, I live with 2 sisters and my mom wants to be able to feed the rabbit some vegetables throughout the day, when I will be at school. (scraps from meal prep) I didn't really like that idea, just because I don't know how many and which veggies she will be getting, and I'm concerned that she might get too many/the wrong veggies and get a bit sick.
Should I be worried about that? And is it unreasonable to not allow my family to feed my bunny a bit of vegetables when I'm away? Assuming she is being fed safe veggies, is it okay for my family to feed some vegetables to my bunny while I'm away?
I was also thinking of measuring out the day's pellets in a container and allowing people to feed her what was in the container throughout the day. Is that okay as well?

Thanks! :)
I would not have your family give your rabbits scraps through out the day just to make sure your rabbit can not handle some stuff right! My rabbit's schedule is a bowl of vegetables in the morning and then around lunch time I give him some pellets and for dinner I give him some more vegetables for dinner. Sometimes I give my rabbit a treat and I always make sure my rabbit has hay 24'7 all day. Hope it helps. :)

She/the bunny (I'm going to keep saying "she" and "her" until I decide on a name-) is super outgoing and friendly, and since she did not seem fazed at all by me I took her out to play today! She did a bunch of binkies and zoomies!! I love her so much! 😍
I'll send the video in tomorrow!

Not having trouble adjusting at all is she :p

She's adorable! And certainly seems quite content in her new home.
