Here is the updated link from the House Rabbit Society that explains that of the fresh part of their diet (greens, veg, fruit), what portion each should make up. For example, leafy greens should make up 75% of their fresh diet, non-leafy veg at around 15% of their fresh diet, and even less for fruits. Of course the bulk of their diet should be grass hay. That probably sounded confusing but the article could be misunderstood to say that 15% of their total diet should be this or that.
