Rabbits have quite sensitive digestive systems, so it’s wise to stick to a few select foods when judging what to feed them. Although this list is not comprehensive, it should give you a good, general idea - it could also be a useful page to print out and keep somewhere in your kitchen.
Rabbits can eat a number of different foods, but be sure to introduce anything that is new very slowly
- Unlimited Water
- Rabbit Salt Lick
- Grass (be careful of the weeds and plants that come along with this, and do not feed them clippings, as this can cause stomach problems)
- Unlimited Hay
- Dry Food
- Apple (only once or twice a week)
- Brussel Sprouts
- Carrot (only once or twice a week)
- Pea pods
- Sunflower seeds
Wild Greens (note - if you are going to give your rabbits wild greens, they can’t have been sprayed by any pesticides, weedkillers, or fertilisers as these can be harmful)
- Cow parsnip
- Dandelion (only occasionally, as it is a laxative)
There is a very long list of wild greens that rabbits should avoid, so if you’re unsure of your plant identification skills, it’s best to leave it out.
