Are you confused about what to feed for your rabbits?
Here’s a blog on what you should feed your rabbits with the feed plan. Around 70 to 80% of the overall expense is because of feed cost. Since this plays a major role, you should take intense care in feeding the right food for your rabbits. It’s important to understand what you give for your rabbits so that they get a healthy diet.
As a first thing, let us cover what not to feed for rabbits
According to PETA, there are 15 numbers of foods listed below the category of what not to feed for the rabbits
Foods such as yoghurt drops, bread, pasta, cookies, avocado, cereal, iceberg lettuce, silverbeet, hamster food, walnuts, oats, any types of chocolates, peanut butter, potatoes, rhubarb, meat & cauliflower must not be fed to the rabbits.
These foods might result in developing bad bacteria in the intestinal tract. You should also have in mind that you should not provide high-carb diets as well.
What is the best feed for your rabbits?
Make sure you follow a right feeding system that has greens, homemade grains or hay. If you follow feeding rabbit pellets make sure you are not giving any other food. Hay is often fed to stop diarrhoea and to aid the doe after kindling which is also an important part in rabbits daily intake. It may be helpful in some cases, but do not feed it continuously. Also, when buying feed check
whether they are good and fresh, return it if the feeds are mouldy or wet. It is better to place the feeds in a cooling or dry place.
