I’m curious on what others feed their rabbits as treats and fresh foods, I’ll start.
- Basil (all my rabbits LOVE it)
- Kale (I don’t give them lettuce so they love it as well)
- Tomatoes [cherry] (I’d say about half of my rabbits like them)
- Mint (this is their first time having it so I’m not 100% they like it)
- Cheerios [original Cheerios] (all of mine get a few every night and they go CRAZY)
- Marigold (I’d say 4/6 of my rabbits like it)
- Thyme (it’s been a while since we’ve had it so I’m not sure how many still like it)
- Cilantro (they all like this one fine enough)
- Oregano (I again haven’t had this in a while and if I remember correctly they all like it)
- Banana (on the rare occasion, I roll it in oats)
- Oats

I have one rabbit that really likes parsley but as a rule I don't generally give vegetables as treats

Mine like oats and black oil sunflower seeds (unlike normal sunflower seeds the rabbits can digest the shells and the oils can help their coat). Occasionally I give banana or calf manna as a treat

I also give my rabbits parsley which they eat fine. I give them an apple slice sometimes. I’ve heard of the sunflower seeds but I might have to try it if it helps their coats. Calf-mana I only really give to my wet does, I’ve never heard of it for all rabbits, which I might need to try.

Never tried pear, plum or peach, but I know at least three of my rabbits like raspberries and celery greens!

Zero, and I mean zero, fresh fruit for my little Freya. I've tried just about everything. She's so weird about fresh fruit. She won't eat it. Her favorite fresh food is Romaine Lettuce. She's loved the introduction of Mint the last couple of days. She likes Dandelion Greens and Rosemary but they're not her favorite and she could take it or leave it.

That’s so funny! I never heard of a rabbit who doesn’t like fruit!
Also, at the mention of dandelion, did you know that the dandelion root is good for urinary tract infections? I used it once and it actually worked.

My vet told me to feed my Rabbit Romaine lettuce in very small quants

Any reason why? It's one of the main leafy greens I've found on every "feed daily" list I've come across. Is your vet confusing Romaine with Iceberg, which should never be fed? Freya has had a cup of Romaine almost every day we've had her. No diarrhea or other issues with it.
