    Hello :) Looking for some tips on feed. We got started in May, and are up to nineteen holes with one weaned litter. I’ve been doing full feed on most of our rabbits because they are/were juniors, but some have hit senior weight and then made “ideal” weight for their breed. Currently feeding Kalmbach 18 for juniors and those going to shows within the next few weeks and Kalmach 15 for my seniors who are just hanging out right now. Once a rabbit hits their normal adult weight, how much pelleted food do you give them daily? Breeds are Rex (vast majority) with some CDA and a Californian.
    Thank you for your help!

    1/2 cup per 5 pounds of rabbit.
    So:
    Rex- 1 cup if they are about 10 pounds
    CDA- 1 cup to 1 cup and 1/4 if between 10-12 pounds
    Californian- 3/4 cup- 1 cup
    Babies and up to 6 months old-free feed
