Hey,
My rabbit is 9weeks old now and I've just introduced her to Curly Kale and sliced Spring Greens.
I've been giving her a handful of pellets morning and night, aswell as unlimited hay.
Would I be right to just give her her veg in evening and no pellets, then a bigger handful of pellets in the morning?
Dont want to over or underfeed her!

Pellets-wise, you only need to be feeding about an eggcup a day, if not less, so you won't be starving her! They may act hungry, but pellets are like sweets to them. As long as they have unlimited hay they are fine.

Just be careful introducing veg so young, most wouldn't recommend it until about 12 weeks. Maybe only introduce one at a time too, and in very small quantities so if they cause and upset tummies you notice and can take it away.
