Update: So I put a ton of hay in one of his beds (2nd story) randomly and he took a few bites! He still won't eat a lot of it, but it's a good start

Veggie are Very Good for rabbits, Don't feed them corn is a big thing. Anyway, I give mine all sorts of veggie's. Most of them really like carrots, but boy is one picky. He does not eat carrots!!! I give them celery, I give them Grapes too, I give them fruit as well, such as apples, once in a while a little bit of banana, and Peaches. But I feed mine mostly veggies I would say about 65-75% of there diet consists of veggies, the rest is pellet.

^Cool story, bro

If he doesn't like carrots, maybe he's not a rabbit



Sounds good You cut up the celery, right? I've heard that you should never give big pieces of celery to rabbits because the strings could get stuck in their intestines.

Awww... My baby is an indoor rabbit who used to be outdoor. He's a lot happier inside, I can tell. We get really bad summers, that's why I moved him in in the first place.

My Bun will eat pretty much anything I put in his cage, lol. The only hay I've ever seen in stores is KayTee, so that's all I've ever bought, and he likes it well enough. I'm going to look into buying it off of that Hayloft site that was posted, though. We just don't have a lot of money right now, so hopefully it's not horribly expensive. He eats it, but mostly enjoys throwing it around his cage and making nests out of it. I'll mix in a little bit of alfalfa so that he's more inclined to eat it. We also buy the KayTee timothy hay pellets, he likes those a lot. He's eaten every veggie I've ever given him, although some days he turns his nose up at them-- except for celery leaf, he LOVES that.



About what amount of veggies should a small rabbit get daily? Bun's a dwarf rabbit, only about 3 lbs. Everything I've read seems to be contradictive in terms of amounts, but always says to give a variety.



By the way Dana, Mason is adorable!

Your bun is ADORABLE! I want to STEAL him



It's true, Kaytee is the easiest to find and some places offer it exclusively. It's not bad stuff, I haven't had quality issues with it, but I guess it's not "top shelf" so to speak My chins only like Orchard Grass, so that's pretty much all I have on hand. I do have some Timothy Hay and Bermuda Grass, but no one cares for it. I want to try Oat.
