    Hello! At what age is it okay to let a rabbit outside (under supervision) to roam in the grass? Should I be worried about letting him consume the grass?

    I would say over 6 months so their gi tract has fully developed. Make sure tbey are in a pen with a top on it and close supervision the whole time as predators can swoop down fast and catch them. Make sure the grass hasn’t been treated with pesticides, no animals have walked on the grass as parasite eggs can be on the grass and then the bun can eat them. You can wash the grass before he eats it for safe consumption.

    There can be toxic weeds or plants in the lawn, so you really have to be careful about what your rabbit is eating. There are a lot of dangers outside, due to predators, and a sudden noise or the presence of a predator can startle a rabbit, making it take off and possibly injure itself, or it can run away if frightened if it is not in a pen.

    Personally, I wouldnt worry about toxic weeds. Maybe i have too much Faith, but i dont believe herbivores will eat toxic plants. I do however, worry about flies. Bot flies are attracted to rabbits. I will never let my rabbits outside again, because there is no way to prevent a bot fly from laying eggs near my rabbits, and therefore no way to prevent them from getting fly strike. Even if using ivermectin.
