          Poop color varies with the moisture content of the food. Fresh grass and leafy greens will make the poop darker than hay will. My buns’ poop always change to a darker color in the spring/summer because of the addition of fresh grass.

          The poop on your picture still looks very good, good round uniform shape and with bits of hay in them. Darker poop is not really an observandum. Poop size, shape and amount are more important.

            Yeah, looks like normal poop to me. Color just varies by moisture content and what they are eating overall.

              I wouldn’t be concerned about darker poo as long as overall numbers and consistency are still there– poop will be darker between different types of hay, how much water a rabbit drinks relative to pooing, as well as veggies and such. Those look fine to me.

                Looks normal to me! My buns poop color will vary between batches of hay. When the hay is more grassy and soft (like orchard grass) their poops will be darker. More crunchy dry stalks lead to lighter colored poops.
