Your bunnies are very young, most wouldn’t be away from their mother for another couple of weeks. However I also had a six week old bunny so I feel I can advise.

I would think lemon juice would actually act as a deterrent for buns, since they don’t tend to like overly bitter things but I may be wrong, I have never heard of litter training using it though. Young buns sometimes just take a while to get the hang of it and since you have three it will likely take a long time, they will probably have to be desexed before they get really good litter habbits

You don’t need salt licks, its a myth that rabbits need extra salt, in fact it can be pretty bad for them. lots of things pet shops sell for rabbits actually aren’t suitable at all for buns, particularly a lot of the treats they sell

I absolutely would not feed rabbits bread, there are so many things that could go wrong with doing this. Its not part of their natural diet in any way, grains aren’t good for bunnies and bread could and probably would swell up in their tummies which could cause even more issues.

You also shouldn’t be giving veggies yet your buns are too young – unlimited hay and pellets is what they should be getting at this age, preferably alfalfa hay

I assume you have things set up to separate them in a few weeks? there is no way you can know the sex of the buns at six weeks and even if you did and they were all the same sex they will ultimately start fighting when puberty hits in a few weeks.
