      My Teddy Bears has to be raisins…. he’s got his head stuffed back in the bag before he’s even finished the last mouthful!

       

      However, he’s very fond of his Excell food…. he gets very excited when he hears the pellets drop into his bowl, he starts bouncing around and throwing toys lol! Its very cute.

      For Sable it’s his dried papaya. He never seems to get tired of it. As soon as he’s put in his cage for the night he races over to the spot where we always put a piece for his bedtime snack. If it’s not there he goes berserk looking for it.

      Both my girls love raisins and craisins. They have a new favorite I got the other day- dried apple chips with cinnamon

      Their favorite food is definitely oat hay.  When they see me heading out into the backyard where we store their hay, all three of them stand on their hind legs to check out what I am bringing.  If it is oat hay, they come running from wherever they are and chow down in the litter box when I dump the hay in.

      I think their favorite treat food is probably banana slices, but they really like bits of apple too.

      for Pepper it is definitely kale.  She will dig out kale from her dish even before carrots!  Secondary is – well – everything else.  She begs for treats, carries around boxes that smell like food, and tried to dig through the trash on a regular basis.

      Frisco is more tentative – he has decided he kind of likes craisins but still won’t take a raisin or a papaya tablet.  I think his favorite veg is celery – the tops with the leaves by preference.

      All three of my bunnies love italian parsley, but as far as treats go, Rucy and Jack go bonkers over raisins.    Bailey really loves mint and rosemary, while Rucy’s healthy favorite treat includes basil.

      Booboo LOVES dried bananas  i have a tin with treats in and when i shake it they come running, and they are allowed to pick 1 thing out… Booboo always goes for banana.

      Mable loves ANYTHING…. and she will always try to sneak more out of the tin

      They have both started getting quite lazy… they love to lie in their cage and sip out of their water bowls whilst lying down x

      my kids will dance to ANY treat – be it hay cubes or anything.

      everybunny really loves the oxbow papaya tablets especially thought…

      mine really like the bananas as well..they will even get up in my lap begging for them. The only thing that I have found that they do not really like is spinach. It just stays in the food dish. The Banana shivers are very cute to watch.

      My buns go nuts for raisins and oat groats.  They’ve gotten so used to hearing the rustling of a plastic bag before getting their raisin or groats that now if I even shake a bag (even when I am putting a new garbage bag in the trash can) I’ve got three little bunnies hopping on their tiptoes and standing on top of each other’s heads, fighting for the hypothetical treat! (Pavlovian response at its best )

      Noble loves his banana piece he gets almost daily. I make a banana smoothy for breakfast, as soon as he hears the blender, he stops what he’s doing, and waits for his bit of banana.

      None of mine will touch banana. Wierd.
      In general they are stereotypical bunz – they love carrot.
      As a treat, a plain popcorn is like crack to them.

      I like this tread…. it’s always fun to hear what other peoples bunnies are into!

      Both of mine LOVE raisins. They even know the word and recognise the box!

      Josephine loves marigold flowers- she takes it and runs around in circles trying to grunt and chew at the same time. It’s so cute to watch! She also got into my flower pot one time and decapitated all the marigold plants!

      Edward loves carrot tops (not the actual carrot, he wont touch that bit!) and always does the butt twitching when he’s chowing down!

      If your bun likes marigolds, I’ll be she’ll love Pot Marigolds (Calendula) too.  You should be able to grow them in the late fall/winter like we do here, they are a cool season flower.  My buns love to eat the blossoms.
