Hiii everyone. I'm a new mommy for 2 male rabbits they are both 1 yrs old and i just got them a couple of hours ago !! I forgot to ask the previous owner about their feeding schedule and as soon as they got here i gave them food (pellets and romain lettuce) and all of it was almost gone so i added more pellets and some pieces of carrots and now that's gone 2 so i added more pellets. And now there is rarely any pellets left !! If i keep doing this then I'll end up bankrupt lol, i don't want to overfeed them so what feeding schedule do u guys use and recommend
What kind of fruit and veggies do you feed them ?
Here is one of the suggested rabbit diets, showing the good veggies and fruits:
The veggies I most often feed to my rabbits are kale, parsley, cilantro, romaine lettuce, green and red leaf lettuce, carrots and carrot tops, dandelion greens, broccoli, arugula, radicchio. I'm sure I'm forgetting some. They don't get all of those every day, but they do get 4 or 5 different veggies a day. A rabbit should get around 2 cups (or more) of veggies a day.
Carrots have a lot of sugar, so they should be treated as fruit, and given in smaller quantities.
Fruit should be given sparingly and in small quantities, due to the high sugar content. The fruit I most often give is apple. They also may get some banana, pear. raisins, or grapes (seedless, and I split the grape and take out the little pips of the seedless ones).
Thankss sooo much
