Can a bunny have too much salad?

  1. No, you cannot get fat from salad. Eat as much as you like.

  2. Yes. Even salad has a limit. Everything in moderation, buns.

    Our hoomins let us have salad leaves sometimes (not lettuce) and we think they are the bestest. However hoomins say we can't have too much as we will get fat bunnies. But hoomins eat salad to lose weight, so we think that if the hoomins are concerned about our weight they should let us have more salad, not less.

    What do you think?

    Recommended is 2-4 cups of greens daily -- that is once bunny is used to each green by having been slowly introduced. All lettuces (except iceberg) are perfectly fine.
    Unlimited hay, limited pellets, 2-4 cups greens every day.

    Ours are both 5 years old and 6 pounds, so they get 1 1/2 cups in the morning and evening.
