Just letting you guys know she is completely back to normal. Gas pain I guess. I can't thank you people enough for your advice and support. I am so thankful I found this caring community! I am a new owner and will admit I have NO idea what I am doing but I just want the best for my girls and you have been an invaluable source of information and support.

Thanks to everyone who responded.

In my opinion this was caused by a "toy" that had too much sugar in it and some stale hay that they don't really like.... 

I got them a new bag of hay right before the storm and they do eat it but seem to not prefer it. Usually I have to refill their hay feeder more than  twice a day but with this new stuff I have noticed that there is still some left in the mornings.Should have been a warning sign I guess       I got them orchard grass in the past and I switched to timothy hay and they seem to hate it. The hay in the bag seemed a bit stale and im slapping myself for not getting another before everything closed. The pet stores are all still shut down so now im feeding them fewer pellets and veggies so they will eat their hay but I was just wondering if there are any particular brands that are better than others. 

Thanks again!

Matt

I'm so glad to hear she is feeling better! I'm glad you found our advice helpful. That's what we are here for.

What brand of hay are you feeding now? I like Oxbow. A lot of BB members use Oxbow or American Pet Diner (you can buy this brand online).

For some reason I think the orchard grass has a sweeter smell than the timothy and is what my Bud prefers but he will eat timothy if I mix some in...

Oxbow is a great brand. In the years I've been on the forum, I have heard a lot of good things about it. I recently found it at petsmart and I was so excited.

Well your rabbits are in great hands with you guys. Your wanting the best and willingness to find the info ensures that.

I was exactly same when I got my first rabbit. I knew so little. I got books and on the Internet and this site just kept drawing me back.
Whoever says "It's only a rabbit" has obviously never loved a rabbit.
