I'm finding mixed information on what my bunny can and can not eat. Some places say do not feed him such things as cabbage or broccoli. Others say they love it. Some places say a small chunk of cookie or peanut is fine, others say no. I was just curious what does everyone feed their bunnies? What's safe and what isn't?
With regards to veggies, my bunnies regularly get carrots and carrot tops, broccoli (mostly florets), cauliflower, cucumber, and parsley.
You just have to be careful to not overfeed the orange part of the carrots, since they are high in carbs/sugar, and with broccoli, which could give them gas in high enough quantities. Of course everybun is different so you have to always carefully monitor any reactions towards new foods.
I would not give them cookies at all. That is human junk food, just imagine how bad it would be for a bunny! Plus, a lot of cookies have saturated and/or trans fats, which I don't think rabbit GI tracts are well equipped to handle.
