I get spring greens or savoy or sweetheart cabbage which seems to be their favourite.

o so most cabbages are okay then, what sort of quantity do you give them?

My lot, and the ones at work usually get maybe one or 2 leaves of either savoy or spring greens twice a day. Depends on how big the leaves are, plus they get turnip and carrot as well.

At work the cabbage is usually what they all eat first! :lol:

My 2 love spring greens uusually give them twice a day.They prefer the greener leaves rather than the lighter leaves.

Mine always have sweetheart cabbage (because that's my favourite as well! :lol:)
They seem to love it and never had any problems with it...

Bramble loves Kale, it's his favourite food in the world!

Mine like the savoy but I tend to give brussel sprouts as they keep better. The French call brussel sprouts 'cabbages of brussels' so it is sort of cabbage too :)

My 2 love spring greens (1 large leaf each a day) and curly kale (a small handful a day each)

Spring greens galore for mine. They all despise Savoy though :(.

Edit: Mine like Curly Kale, however I only give it once a month.
and Brussels.

Mine get either one or two leaves of Savoy each a day, depending on the size of the leaf, and a couple of spring greens too. Normal poos all the way so far! :wave:

My Rexs go nuts for savoy cabbage, have never tried spring greens or turnips, shall give these a try.

If it's green and cabbage looking, my buns will eat it, no matter what it is called. They also love brocolli, especially the stalks.
If yours have never had it before, I would introduce it gradually, 1 leaf each to start with and see how it goes.. then increase if all is well.
Wish I could find a cheap outlet for curly kale, cos I love it, and it is always too expensive :shock:
