    My rabbit doesn't eat enough hay, usually she eats only (probably) one handful of hay everyday, and she's not a very small rabbit either. I bought my timothy hay online and it didn't say what flavor the hay was, so could it be that the taste of it isn't good? She almost never gets pellets or vegetables, but I do give her a little fruit every other day, like a slice of apple or a few grapes, so she can't be picky about food. How do I make her eat more hay?

    Also my rabbit is too lazy, she is a free roam rabbit and has some toys, but all she does is sleep like 20 hours a day. What can I do?

    Bunnies are active different time during the day. Myself rarely see my bunnies playing. Often I only see them sleep, but sometimes I manage to see them play and binky. But its a bigger chance seeing them sleep or eating.

    Some bunnies are picky hay eater and can need a bit of push. Other rather eat fresh grass and some bunnies won’t even touch hay ^^

    So you can always try making sure the hay its fresh and have a good scent, give her dark green leaf veggies to compensate that she don’t like eating hay that much.

    Why doesnt she get vegetables?
    How much pellets do you offer?
    What else does she eat?
    Have you tried other grass hays like Orchard or Bermuda or Oat hay?
