View Full Version : Wood Bark Chips in the garden

I remember a while ago someone posting a thread on woodchips in the garden were not good for bunnies.

Anyone who can shed some light on this please.

There has been some debate about bunnies and bark chippings. I use them in their run, as a digging pit, and haven't noticed any problems. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that they're ok!

I think you should just read the packet carefully, find out what wood is used (I think it is quite often some kind of fir which may be poisonous) and also whether it has been treated with preservatives. My bunnies have always loved playing in bark, but they also took to eating it, which is why I don't have it any more!

AH, that must be the difference - my bunnies don't eat it :D I wonder why not - they eat everything else!
