    Our new bunny (8 weeks) will only eat Oat Hay and pellets. Is this okay?

    Are the pellets alfalfa? If so, maybe that's enough calcium for a growing bunny, but I'm not sure.

    Yes, alfalfa pellets. I give her Timothy Hay and alfalfa hay and she seems to only eat the oat hay. She loves it!

    Yeah Harvey loves oat hay too. Oat hay is a grass hay so it is good for adult rabbits.

    Might want to try orchard too. Harvey didn't care much for Timothy and it made my eyes itch like crazy. But he loves oat and orchard.

    Thank you. I will look for Orchard Hay! I will be glad when I can start her on some vegetables.
