Feeding your bunny
Supply lots of fresh hay (whether it's grass or oaten) on a daily basis. If you want to go straight to the best choice, buy oaten hay. It's really yummy and your bunnies will love you for it. Grass hay is the next choice but watch out for those nasty seeds which can get stuck in your bunny's fur & skin. '
The easiest way you can supply your bunny with hay is by using it in their litter tray (chew & poo station!). Our bunnies have their litter trays changed daily so they are always supplied with fresh and clean hay to eat.
Surprisingly, rabbits drink lots of water!! Supply your bunny with a good, heavy ceramic bowl that will not be tipped over easily. Fill with fresh clean water daily and watch your bunny drink like a fish! (It is a myth that rabbits get enough moisture from their vegetables).
You can use those water bottles but cleaning them is awkward and most bunnies will not receive enough water from them.
3. Fresh Vegies
The safe vegies we choose to feed our buns at BOING are:
* bok choy
What NOT to feed your rabbit
Rabbits don't need pellets in their diet to be healthy. Australian made pellets are very high in fat & salt and low in fibre.
Rabbit mix is a food that should be avoided at all times! Why? Because it's full of all kinds of nasties that your bunny should not be eating:
* dried corn (can carry a deadly bacteria)
Vegies can also be a problem with your bunnies. The vegies you should avoid are:
* iceberg lettuce
