I’d agree with Jersey. The extras in the food aren’t really good for her. She needs unlimited pellets (without nugget-like treats). With being pregnant, you want to aim for 15% protein and 26% fiber. She can go down to 12% protein after she is no longer feeding her kits, but always needs as close to 26^ fiber as you can manage. For pellets on a budget – I think the Rabbit-15 that I used to get from my local feedstore (by blue label) provided enough protein and fiber. They were 15 and 24. Peopel who can aford more will choose brands like oxbow and a few others, that don’t use meal byproducts and various other things, but I used feedstore pellets for a long time, along with fresh veggies, unlimited hay and fresh grass, and my bunnies raised 4 litters just fine. (They are now spayed/fixed and I use small pet select pellets and sherwood forest). No fancy cute colorful treats – just pellets, hay, and veggies.). After she no longer has kits to feed, you can start limiting the pellets, as long as she still has unlimited hay.
