Rabbits have sensitive digestive systems so it is important that you (and your children) are careful with what you feed your bunny. If your rabbit is given to much of the wrong kinds of treats, they can die.
We feed our Holland Lops 1/4 cup of Blue Seal Show Hutch Deluxe Rabbit Food in the morning. If the bunny has eaten his/her feed by 4 pm, we will give them 1/4 cup more of pellets. The Mini Lops will get 1/2 a cup in the morning and 1/4 cup in the afternoon. We also ensure that our rabbits have access to hay all day. Babies under (Holland lops and Mini Lops) 6 months can have more than 1/2 cup a day if needed, if they become overweight reduce feed. Please consult with your veterinarian for any conserns you may have.
Switching feed brands
When switching your rabbits feed you must ensure too slowly introduce the new brand of food, by gradually adding the new brand of feed over a 2 week period. Switching brands to fast will cause the bunny to have diarrhea.
A constant supply of fresh water is very important!
A bunny that is older than 6 months can be given about 1/2 to 1 cup of greens a day. Greens aren't needed if you are providing good quality hay and a quality pellet. Babies usually eat some of their mom's greens while they are with their mom, so continuing to feed about table spoon of greens a day when you bring your bunny home will be OK. Make sure to slowly increase to 1/2 cup daily (or less frequently) by around 6 months old. This is greens such as leaf lettuce, kale, parsley, cilantro, dandelion. Treats like carrot, banana slices, or berries, which should not be given until around 6 months and only once or twice a week about 1 tbsp. If your bunny develops mushy stool or other bowel/digestive changes stop leafy greens. Please research rabbit online as to what is safe to feed your bunny and discuss this with your vet.
