For rabbits, seeds are a major no-no... anything "paste" like is usually sugary (honey or molasses most of the time) which is also a major no-no for bunnies. If I were going to stuff something for rabbits, I would stuff it primarily with hay, but maybe mix in *small* amounts of things like pellets, petals from edible flowers, dehydrated veggies/veggie "chips" (rabbit safe - no oils or preservatives) with, perhaps, an extra-sparse amount of dried fruit (when thinking of the 1 tsp per 2 lbs body weight limit for fruit, you need to measure dried pieces as though they were their fully hydrated counterpart).I wanted to ask you remember you posted a link to a stuffed wood chewing toy like log type, they look very good and I'd love them for my rabbits, only they are quite expensive so I've ordered a couple of hamster tunnels 20-30 cm long and going to cut 30 cm to halves and make this stuffed toy myself. My question is what kind of stuffing there was looked like seeds or something, how'd you keep it in place you make some kind of paste?
Oh you're good for toys I am sure he loved lemon balm, for parsnip I don't know I thought my rabbits will love it but they just tried a bit and left it, all four of them! Maybe just a little bit it smells strongly maybe I've no idea why.

Here's what I ordered hopefully will have delivered tomorrow!
Often when you buy treats from store they come with everything they shouldn’t have. Little Odin on the picture is a little bit overweight, but I’m working on to make him go down again.That's good that you limited the sugary treat! I've always known you to be good about that sort of thing . I just wanted to make sure no one got the wrong idea (that said, nuts are also on the "no no" list for rabbits). And yeah, somehow "new" hay always trumps existing hay, lol.
I remember when I was going to pick him up as a kit, it was a 7 hours car drive. The breeder had named him Lilleman (little man), but when I saw him. I though Odin would fit him because he was a little fighter and survived growing up. He was a small runt weight around 180 gram when I picked him up (8 weeks old), he now how to charm everyone he sees.I feel like I've told you this before... but I am head-over-heels in love with the name Odin! Honestly, I've seen your name come up quite a bit over the three months since my return to these forums. I can't even begin to tell you how much it warms my heart to see a new member to these forums go from newbie asking questions to seasoned member who often answers them! I'm so glad you've stuck around .
Ginger (root and leaves) is safe in very small amounts (Source).So here's what I have and I already know that my rabbits like dried thyme, mint, lavender, chamomile, sometimes sage too, Leo loves dried banana peels and there I have some melon peels and dried carrots and parsnip as well. Now not sure about ginger and turmeric they're on cutting board there's lavender, thyme, bay tree leaves and fennel seeds as well. But you say seeds are a no-no? Why?
I just made them myself took a few minutes and was very enjoyable, just take long hay I've got very nice meadow hay recently with long stems and it was very easy to do.That braided hay thing looks really cute... did you make that or get it from the store? I'm thinking about trying to make one for my bunns!
Often bunnies like fresh branches more, but at least it can keep them entertained.Strangely, my rabbits have no interest in those stuffed logs. Smokey ate the hay from her log it kept her entertained for a while but the log itself is not chewed or something, I have no idea. Looks like pine to me so i really expected then to
My bunnies get their branches that grow behind my house during the spring and summer time.Can they have branches off the trees in your yard
