My bun, London is just shy of four months old. He has always been a good eater and pooper. But for the past two days he has had mushy, cecotropes. He is producing much more than he can consume. They are stuck all over the floor, but not mushy enough to stick to his bottom. I introduced to him to a little bit of cilantro and parsley last week. He hasn't had any veggies for the past four days. So I'm thinking it's not the veggies. He prefers pellets over hay. I give each bun 1/2 cup of pellets a day. I have two buns. He lives with his spayed mum, Penelope. She is about 9 months. Is this not enough pellets or too much? I've read that young buns should have unlimited pellets? They are on Oxbow Adult Timothy Pellets. I converted them from the Oxbow Young Adult Alfalfa Pellets about four weeks ago. My vet recommended switching them from alfalfa to timothy. I'm not sure what's causing the excessive cecotropes?
Any ideas? Should I take pellets away for a period of time or cut back? I hope London is okay. I freak out when I see mushy poop...

It's funny how they love to eat and poop at the same time. I call it "bunny multi-tasking".
