      -Mature rabbits 1-5 yrs- Break down answer to unit for 1 rabbit, 5-6 lbs body weight.

      I keep seeing recommendations ranging from 1/8-1/2 cup, and I’m not sure what’s the best thing.

      Noble gets 1/4 cup in the morning and 1/4 cup at night, plus unlimited hay. Usually a cup of greens, 3 mini carrots and a raisin. He weighs about 4 1/2 pounds.

      Our trio of a 2 pound dwarf and two 5 pound bunnies get 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of timothy pellets, unlimited Orchard grashay, several handfuls of oat hay and about 5-6 cups of greens per day. They also get two small pieces of fruit as a treat per day, either dried or fresh.

      HRS recommends 1/4 cup per 5 pounds of bunny, plus lots of hay and some veggies. Pellets can really pack weight onto bunnies.
