I just adopted a bonded pair of 7 months old buns. My husband and I are first time rabbit owners, so we are still trying to learn as much as possible!
I have a question about chew toys. We've been trying out various toys to try to satisfy our buns' need for chewing. We tried gooseberry branch sticks, apple tree branch sticks, poplar wood blocks, and unpeeled willow.
They have been so-so about the gooseberry, they like the apple very much, and have been very "meh" about the poplar... just nibbling at it a little. However, when we first gave them willow (it was a small basket from Busy Bunny), they went nuts! They chewed up the entire basket in 24 hrs.
Is this normal? We noticed that the day they had the willow basket, they ate significantly less hay. So we were worried that giving them too much willow (even though they love it) might be a bad thing.
We'd also bought a willow tunnel from Busy Bunny, but now I'm a bit afraid of giving it to them to play with because I worry that they'll just chew/eat the willow tunnel nonstop for days and not eat the hay that they need to eat.
Awaiting comments and advice from you all! ^^
