So as you know, I was having trouble getting the bunnies into their room. So I decided to try a reward system. Just some little wheat cheerio like snacks.Ive noticed since i started giving them, Flower is now following me around which is cute but the bad side is, when i give Rosie one, Flower will try to take it out of my hand or even out of Rosie's mouth! I've been think about cutting the treats completly but then again, I will be stuck with no way to get them into their room. any ideas? should i give them to them separably?
Theyre not old enough for veggies yet. Is there an age they have to be before they can eat fruit?
They're too young too have the amount of veggies that adult rabbits are given, but it's okay to give them tiny bits of fruit or vegetable. There's a list here on BinkyBunny of rabbit safe fruits and veggies. Other suggestions for treats could be papaya tablets, craisins, raisins, or other treats that are sold at trustworthy places like BB. Bits of carrot also make good treats as carrots are too sugary to feed all the time. Just be sure to only give a new food every couple days or so rather than a bunch of new foods at the same time to make sure that each new treat isn't too hard on your bunnies' tummies.
Foods that are not safe to give to rabbits are yogurt drops (even though they're sold as rabbit treats), any dairy, cookies, cereal, bread, crackers, anything with nuts or seeds (even though those are also sold as rabbit treats), ect. Basically most human foods besides fruits and veggies, they can cause G.I. Stasis.
