russell bedding straw is nice and soft, unlike most straw, so that's fine - and they can eat it but there's no nutrition in it - they need hay for that :)

straw is good for rabbits who have behaviour problems sometimes. i reason why some bunnies have behaviour probs is because they are bored and the straw takes them longer to eat!

hay is better for them though!
