Walnuts arent great for rabbits, ill quote Peta "Walnuts. Walnuts are high in fat, not fiber, which can cause your rabbit uncomfortable indigestion. If you're looking for a healthy snack to feed your bunny, try fresh veggies or herbs " About almonds Newrabbitowner.com says "You should not feed almonds to rabbits. While almonds are not toxic to bunnies, they provide the wrong balance of nutrients for rabbits. Almonds are extremely high in fats. Eating too many almonds may cause stomach problems including GI stasis for rabbits, which need low fat and high fibre diets based on hay." And sunflower seeds are ok! All the fruits are good.

I would suggest sticking with mostly healthy herbs and veggies for treats, with a small limited amount of fruit. A few sunflower seeds should be ok, but in very limited amounts. The best food for rabbits is being free fed a good quality grass hay or fresh grass that isn't contaminated with anyting. Hay needs to be horse quality and never been wet or moldy. Your rabbit should always have hay(or fresh grass) to eat, and it should never be allowed to run out.

JBun, I am new to rabbitry and want to make sure I'm doing it right. I buy wrapped hay bales (for horses) from Tractor Supply of alfalfa for my kits and nursing does and Timothy for all others. When I open the bales, I shake out the dust and small bits and store the remaining in a plastic bin. Any suggestions/feedback? I want to make sure my buns are well cared for and loved! Thanks! 😊

It would be better for you to start your own thread, so we don't go off topic from the OP.
